Mickey Kaus recommends Carlos Watson's "bloggish web column", noting that "he almost always has something interesting to say. And he's, you know, diverse! I can't figure out why he isn't on every talk show in the country." Here's what Watson says about "Cheney's Case":

Regardless of how the Supreme Court rules in reviewing Vice President Cheney's secret energy task force, the result may be the re-energized presidential candidacy of Ralph Nader. Win or lose, the secret energy task force is likely to provide a ripe target for Nader to raise one of his most effective issues -- corporate corruption of the political system.

On the one hand, if the court forces Cheney to reveal whom he met with to decide energy policy, Nader may have evidence of a conspiracy so notorious (Enron, Halliburton, etc), that it makes even the most ardent defenders of the Bush administration blush.

If the court does not force Cheney to reveal who was involved and whether their involvement helped drive up gas prices and lead to electricity blackouts, then Nader may sound an even louder drumbeat of coverup.

In either case, Nader's political ads and speeches are likely to find great fodder this spring and the issue may be just what he needs to get more voters to pay him close attention.
