Nixon's Lament: No Cheney Fielding Flak

Vice President Dick Cheney tells the President "Pssst, give them nothing and claim Executive Privilege. We never promised them a Rose Garden, but I think we can spare some fertilizer." Poor President Nixon had the honest and ethical Gerald Ford as Vice President, thus he lacked the enforcer like protector currently shielding President Bush from what's known as "the law." Had Tricky Dick the First applied the same logic of Executive Privilege would Watergate ever been much more than a rumour? Deep Throat's assertions needed to be backed up with White House evidence. Meanwhile the Bush team continues its thumbing of the Constitution and rule of law under the able guidance of Tricky Dick the Second.
