AP says Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald may call on Dick Cheney to testify in the Scooter Libby thing.  You should click on the story if for no other reason than to see the fantastic picture of Cheney they've put alongside it.  The news account indicates that Cheney may be of interest for (1) verifying that note he wrote across the top of Joe Wilson's New York Times column and (2) to comment on his state of mind at the time all of these decisions were made.  Evidently Fitzgerald thinks Cheney articulated the 'Get-Joe-Wilson' message loud and clear since Libby testified that:

'In his grand jury testimony, Libby said Cheney was so upset about Wilson’s allegations that they discussed them daily after the article appeared. “He was very keen to get the truth out,” Libby testified, quoting Cheney as saying, “Let’s get everything out”.'
