I don't believe they ever intended to call Cheney and they can't put their client on the stand, knowing he will commit perjury.
If Libby doesn't testify now, after his attorney said that he would, he is toast.
If Congress has been paying attention to the revelations of the Libby Trial, Cheney is toast as well, because if he isn't, Congress, as it currently exists, is.
Vice President Cheney will not testify at Libby trial - CNN.com:
"WASHINGTON (AP) -- Neither Vice President Dick Cheney nor his former aide I. Lewis 'Scooter' Libby will testify at Libby's perjury and obstruction trial in the CIA leak case, Libby's lawyer said Tuesday.
Defense attorney Theodore Wells said he advised Cheney's lawyer over lunch that the vice president's testimony would not be needed. Wells also said he planned to rest his case this week without calling Libby.
In December, Wells had announced he would call Cheney as a defense witness. Historians said it would have been the first time a sitting vice president would have sat as a witness in a criminal case.
