Q So you thought it might leak?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: Pardon?
Q You thought it might leak, sir?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: Oh, based on experience, everything leaks. (Laughter.)
Q Another quick question about the Congress. You, perhaps, saw the Congressman Emmanuel, yesterday, who was responding to the President's press conference. I wondered what you --
THE VICE PRESIDENT: I didn't see him.
Q Can you give your quick thoughts on the presidential race, since we
are Politico? Do you spend a lot of time thinking about that?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: No, I don't look at that at all.
Q Not at all?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: Of course I do, but I'm not going to talk about it.
Q Even the Democratic side?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: I'm -- we're scrupulously neutral in the process, and we need to be.
Q Mr. Vice President, another question: What are your plans for this year in regards to political travel and that sort of thing?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: I will do whatever I can, that I'm asked to do by friends and colleagues, with respect to Congress, in particular, for the House and Senate. I did a fundraiser last evening in Dallas for Ralph Hall. I'll continue to do that, raise funds for the party and so forth; support the efforts with respect to 2008.
Q With the office on the House side that you lost last time, let's face it, the Republican Party -- if you look at the polls and look at the 2006 results -- it's got real problems. What does it need to do to, for example, improve its brand and its reputation in the hope now of getting that office back?
