Vice President Dick Cheney attends a 2006 Victory Rally at 7:00 pm ET in Kalispell, MT. ABC News' Karen Travers reports Cheney is likely to mention John Kerry, which will keep the fires stoked, along with dueling video press releases (a/k/a web videos from the RNC -- on Kerry -- and the DCCC -- on Iraq.)

Also to watch: how many more Democrats throw Kerry under the bus.
