How do you play this double?

Reading Emily Middleton's bidding poll opened a question about doubles of preempts by LHO when we have made two bids in a constructive auction.  See http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/atb-big-club-fit/ for the poll.  Assume LHO preempts at their first turn to bid.

Of course we can create finer distinctions and other points where context drives a change in interpetation.  Let's get at that through dialog below.  For now, how do you play the doubles for Cases 1 and 2?
