VP Cheney coming to STS-121 launch

The Orlando Sentinel and Florida Today reported late Tuesday that Vice President Dick Cheney plans to attend the STS-121 launch scheduled for Saturday. He’s not making a special trip to the launch: assuming the launch goes off as scheduled Saturday afternoon, he’ll head up to Daytona for the Pepsi 400 race there Saturday night. (One imagines that he’ll also make some appearances for Republican Congressional candidates while he’s down there, but the Vice President’s office hasn’t released details about his trip yet.) That suggests that Cheney won’t stick around if the launch is delayed a day or more.
