Vice President Dick Cheney was treated for a serious blood clot in his leg upon his return from extensive travel in the past week.
Could this be the opening many Republicants have been praying for? That is, will Cheney now be able to defensibly resign on account of "health reasons" thus opening the door to a true successor for Dubya?
And who could it possibly be? Condi Rice? Bill Frist? Perhaps a southern Governor like Haley Barbour or Mark Sanford? Or dare we say it -- Jeb Bush?
