"Cheney flees to Georgia during RNC week."

The White House announced today that Vice President Cheney will be traveling to Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Ukraine on Sept. 2, causing him to miss most of the Republican National Convention. Cheney, however, is still scheduled to speak on the convention’s opening night, Sept. 1. Marc Ambinder calls it “a way to make sure VP Cheney doesn’t distract from the RNC proceedings.” While Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) claims President Bush was “very badly served” by Cheney, Yglesias notes that in 2000, McCain said he would have made Cheney vice president had he won the presidency.
