      List of possible replacements for Libby


      Vice President Dick Cheney has just a few close
      advisers, inside and outside government, who are
      considered possibilities to replace chief of staff I.
      Lewis "Scooter" Libby. Libby resigned Friday after
      being indicted in the CIA leak investigation. Among
      those advisers are:

      -David Addington, a cautious and seasoned lawyer. He
      is the vice president's counsel and was a top aide to
      Cheney when Cheney was defense secretary.

      -Mary Matalin, Cheney's top public relations
      strategist during President Bush's first term. She has
      remained an informal adviser since leaving the White
      House to work as a private consultant.

      -Eric Edelman, U.S. ambassador to Turkey. He was
      Cheney's national security assistant from February
      2001 to June 2003 and worked closely with Libby when
      both were at the Pentagon earlier in their careers.

      -Dean McGrath, Cheney's deputy chief of staff. He has
      experience working throughout government including the
      Treasury, Transportation and Defense Departments, the
      Peace Corps and as a congressional staffer.

      -Steve Schmidt, whom Cheney hired after getting to
      know his work as a strategist in Bush's re-election
      campaign. Schmidt also helped John Roberts during
      Roberts' successful confirmation to be chief justice
      of the United States.
