Ever since the presidential election, there has been speculation by politicians and journalists about the second Bush Administration. In fact, what is rapidly developing is that this presidency is becoming the first Cheney Administration.

In a rapid sequence of moves, Vice President Cheney has gained control over the foreign policy apparatus of the United States in the name of his neo-con ideology:

Defense will now command the foreign policy of the US. The neo-cons will ride unchallenged.

What is happening is that President Bush is being turned into a figurehead. The actual power in this administration is going to be exercised by Dick Cheney.

So, call it by its name: the first Cheney Administration.
