Will Cheney Be Asked to Resign?

I know this has been discussed as a possibility in the past, but recent developments could cause the event to happen.
As you all know, John McCain pretty much has the Rep
ublican nomination in the bag now (unless conservatives decide to side with Huckabee in the last minute - which I doubt). You also know that conservatives are steaming over the idea of McCain being their leader.
Here's a thought for you to discuss. Are the conservatives angry and desperate enough to ask Vice President Dick Cheney to resign early?
Seriously folks, we all know how determined republicans are to continue staying in the Middle East. We also know how desperate they are to `stay in power'. We also know the last thing they need is for the truth about what they've been doing for the past seven years to be released to the public. No longer being just rumors or attacks by the liberal media.
What's the best and fastest way to keep control of the White House? Have Dick Cheney resign because of health reasons. This would force President George W. Bush to nominate a new Vice President immediately.
Now, let's think about who Bush would nominate, or should I say, `be forced' to nominate?
Whomever he picks will have to be very well known across America so that when September rolled around, he could go right into the general election right after the GOP convention.
Would he pick John McCain? I'm pretty sure that won't happen, not if the GOP wants to keep their base. How about Mike Huckabee? Nope, if they wanted him, he would have done a lot better during the Super Tuesday. Romney? No way.
Let's think a little deeper. Who is well known, popular on television, educated, a conservative, ran during the campaign and got better at debating as he went along? Who supports the current administration's actions almost 100%?
Fred Thompson is my bet. Who's yours?
