What If It Were Dick Cheney?

Watching the softball coverage, or lack of any coverage at all, of Hillary’s email problems, I can’t help but wonder what the coverage would be if this had been a Republican, say Dick Cheney?

I don’t think it would be any stretch to say it would be 24/7 and several major papers crowing how they had “flooded the zone.” All one has to do to recall the coverage of the “outing” of CIA bureaucrat Valerie Plame or the obsessive coverage of the Scooter Libby case or the planeloads of journalists who went to Alaska to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin within hours of her being named as a vice presidential nominee while essentially none could be bothered to look into Obama’s past.
