Poor Dick Cheney. It's really hard being the embodyment of evil and there is always a price to pay.
Vice President Dick Cheney will not make an appearance at the Republican convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul next month, according to sources in his office. Cheney has not sought a speaking slot at the convention, nor has his staff sought a role for him at the convention.
Right. Because outgoing Vice Presidents always have to "seek" a role at the convention, they are never asked. Although, there are plenty of demons who want Dick to speak.
"Conservatives still think highly of him and are enthusiastic supporters whenever he speaks," says a leading conservative who has spoken to the campaign about Cheney. "For a campaign that has largely failed in reaching out to conservatives, reaching out to Cheney wouldn't be a bad idea."
It would be a great idea. For Democrats.
