Watch List: Cheney and Libby

It is that time again, when the media begin to contemplate how the administration's key players are contemplating their own "legacy." See, Clinton wasn't really all that long ago, was he? A piece on Dick Cheney that is out and about today and it contains this passage:

... Cheney declined to be interviewed. But those close to him say he approaches retirement with neither reticence nor eagerness, but rather with a Zen-like confidence that even his most controversial moves, like his stance in favor of domestic wiretapping, have been necessary to keep the country safe

... [He]remains furious over the conviction of his former chief of staff, I. Lewis Libby Jr., after a trial that depicted the vice president as the orchestrator of a scheme to discredit a critic of the Iraq war. Alan K. Simpson, a former Republican senator from Wyoming, said Cheney regarded the trial as "a grievous distortion," and would most likely press Bush to pardon Libby.
