Cheney finally accepts blame, may be charged


"You can't blame anybody else," Cheney told Fox News a few minutes ago. "I'm the guy who pulled the trigger and shot my friend."

Well, we knew that...but what about the several hours between when it happened and when the authorities were informed? Cheney merely says, "It was one of the worst days of my life."

So far, anyway. If Whittington dies, Cheney could be facing a charge of criminally negligent homicide or possibly even manslaughter.

And, as vice president, Cheney has no immunity from prosecution.

Even if Whittington recovers, Cheney could still face a felony charge of negligently causing injury to an aged person, but such a charge would be unusual in the case of a hunting accident.

Is it time for Cheney to resign?
