A delegation led by Vice President Cheney will transport Herod’s body to its new resting place: the lobby of the Heritage Foundation.The inspiration and probable ancestor of the NeoConservatives, Herod now is remembered chiefly as a villain of the New Testament and the first husband of Midge Decter.
