Your Turn: The Final Days Of Bush (And Cheney?)

TIME Bush Cheney.jpg

On its face, this seems like strictly a historical piece. On the contrary, though, this cover — given the philosophical and leadership vacuum on the far right — just might serve as a re-introduction. (As in: move over.) This piece of business, for example, appears early in the article:

While Bush has retired to Texas to write his memoirs and secure his legacy by other means, Cheney is settling in for a long siege in Washington, where he will soon be installed in a conservative think tank and where, Republicans say, he will pull levers on Capitol Hill to make his voice heard.

If Bush is the one retiring, though, wasn’t that always the case?
