Would a conservative group sue a rebublican vice president?

A recent article on Genifer Flower's reaction to Bill Clinton's autobiogaphy refers to her lawyers at Judicial Watch, a " a Washington-based conservative court and government watchdog". This gives the impression that Judicial Watch is one of those crazy neo-con groups that it still out to get Bill Clinton.

That seems to be stretching it a bit. Judicial Watch describes themselves as nonpartisan. More importantly, some of their current cases don't exactly fit the Republican adgenda - stuff like suing Dick Cheney for alledgedly making false claims when he was CEO of Halliburton.

I guess one could argue that Judicial Watch is conservative in that they are for small government and judicial restraint. But chances are most people who read the article will think conservative=republican - and chances are that's what the article's author wanted you to think.
