iPol: 2008: How Desperate are Republicans?

Excerpted from this post at iPol

The big question right now among Republicans is how to remove Vice
President Cheney from office. Or so says Sally Quinn in an op-ed piece
in today's Washington Post, shockingly titled, "A GOP Plan to Oust
Cheney." Are things really that bad among Republicans? You bet they
are. The GOP is still reeling from its epic defeat in last year's
elections, and lives in daily dread of next year's contest for the
White House. It isn't hard to understand why. Just take a look at the
candidates fielded by each party. For the Democrats: Joe Biden, a
Senator with awesome policy chops; Hillary Clinton, already a
political legend whose star is in all probability still rising; Chris
Dodd, who is rapidly becoming a one-man idea factory in this campaign;
John Edwards, with proven populist appeal; Barack Obama, the ultimate
political rock star; and Bill Richardson, with as impressive a resume
as any person who has ever sought the Oval Office. For the
Republicans: a crop of anonymous pols so generic and colorless that
one of their own number coined the definitive collective moniker of
dismissal for them all: Rudy McRomney.
