With Libby convicted, what does that mean for Cheney?

The NYT runs with a breathless piece this morning speculating on what the political toll may be for VP Cheney in light of yesterday’s verdict in the Libby trial.

Captain Ed points out that indeed the VP will be on the hot seat with the media and, of course, Democrats in Congress for months to come over this and thinks that the VP should not resign, while Jules Crittenden has a more cynical take on the whole controversy.

Let’s also not forget that Joe “Cocktail Party” Wilson and his wife still intend to go forward with a civil suit against the WH.

By my count, Mr. Wilson is into his 17th minute of fame.
