My take is no. But the Republicans have no leader with enough pull to tell him to shut up, outside of George H.W. Bush or possibly, George W. Bush. So, they are quietly just letting Cheney and his sidekick, daughter beat the terror drum. They are not talking because once you start talking about torture and the Bush policy in the Middle East, that is a can of worms that neither can defend. And yes, the CIA lies and yes, this tempest in the teapot about Nancy Pelosi is dead by Friday.
