DENVER -- A Colorado man can sue two Secret Service agents who arrested him after he touched former Vice President Dick Cheney on the arm in 2006 and told him his Iraq War policies were "disgusting," a federal appeals court ruled Monday.
The ruling means Steven Howards can try to subpoena Cheney to testify about the incident, said David Lane, Howards' attorney.
"I fully intend on deposing the former vice president," Lane told The Associated Press.

(Dec. 3) -- That's all she wrote?
Forget about the idea of ever seeing Hillary Rodham Clinton become president. In fact, after her current job as secretary of state, Clinton says she may never seek public office again.
Clinton made that revelation at a town hall meeting in Bahrain on Friday, CBS News reported.
"I think I will serve as secretary of state as my last public position," Clinton said in response to a question on whether she planned to give President Barack Obama a primary challenger in 2012 or had aspirations to step in as his vice presidential running mate.
So what will...

(Oct. 14) -- The man who was shot by Vice President Dick Cheney refuses to say if he ever got an apology.
"I'm not going to go into that," the usually courtly Texas attorney Harry Whittington told The Washington Post in a lengthy interview published today.
More than four years on, the 82-year-old conservative lawyer and Cheney hunting companion also provided new details that appear to contradict previous reports about the birdshot heard 'round the world.

(Oct. 13) -- Oops, another hole in the Hillary Clinton-may-replace-Joe Biden-as-President Obama's-running mate-in-2012 story. Biden says Obama has already asked him to "run again" as vice president.
"I tell you what, there's a real trust, that's why he's asked me to run again," Biden told the New York Times between campaign stops in Pittsburgh Monday. "Look, he said, 'We're going to run together, are you going to run?' I said, 'Of course, you want me to run with you, I'd be happy to run with you.'"...

(Oct. 12) -- Dick Cheney is back in the public eye, after months of recovery following major heart surgery in July.
But there's now much less of Cheney to look at, as the former vice president has shed a reported 20 pounds from his frame. And that weight loss is accompanied by a disconcerting frailty, according to onlookers who watched Cheney partake in a Q&A at the Bakersfield Business Conference in California.

Last week Washington was abuzz denying (or repeating) speculation by investigative journalist Bob Woodward of Woodward and Bernstein Watergate fame. Woodward told CNN it was "on the table" in Obama's camp for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden to exchange places before the 2012 election. He later backtracked (after the president's spokesman called the rumor "just absolutely not true"), but whatever was Bob Woodward thinking?
The former first lady is not remotely interested in the vice president's job. Don't get me wrong, as Washington jobs go, Vice President of...

(Oct. 6) -- The White House has emphatically denied any notion that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will replace Joe Biden as President Obama's running mate in 2012.
The latest wave of Hillary buzz was amplified Tuesday night when Bob Woodward, author of the new book "Obama's Wars," told CNN's John King that a possible Obama-Clinton ticket is "on the table." The idea is that Clinton would energize a 2012 campaign -- particularly among women. In some scenarios, Biden, former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, would take over as secretary of state....

(Sept. 22) -- Because the vice president commits the occasional verbal gaffe, does that make it alright for anyone in the Democratic party to do so?
That's the excuse Ohio Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern offered on behalf of himself, at least, after he referred to tea partiers and opponents of the Obama health care reform plan as "f---ers," at a 2010 midterm elections campaign event in Ohio earlier today.
"If your kids are going to graduate from college, now he or she gets health care, your heath care, while he or she looks for a new job," Redfern said. "It's in the very base terms...

(July 21) -- Al Gore hasn't had a good summer, and a new report could make it worse -- doubly so.
According to The National Enquirer, police are investigating the claims of two more massage therapists who say that Gore sexually abused them in 2007 and 2008, respectively. The former incident is said to have taken place when Gore was staying at a Beverly Hills hotel ahead of the 79th Academy Awards ceremony; the latter has been traced to Tokyo. Both would have occurred while Gore was married.
Last month, the Enquirer broke the news that police had investigated, dismissed, then recently...
