Today's Washington Post has the first in a series of articles profiling Vice President Dick Cheney. Here's a snippet:
"Dan Quayle recalled the moment he learned how much his old job had changed. Cheney had just taken the oath of office, and Quayle paid a visit to offer advice from one vice president to another.
"'I said, "Dick, you know, you're going to be doing a lot of this international traveling, you're going to be doing all this political fundraising . . . you'll be going to the funerals,"' Quayle said in an interview earlier this year. 'I mean, this is what vice presidents do. I said, "We've all done it."'
"Cheney 'got that little smile,' Quayle said, and replied, 'I have a different understanding with the president.'"
So is the 46th Vice President of the United States a bold leader who's done much to ensure our way of life or a power monger who's hung us all out for years to come?
And before you go lecturing the DT staff about what's appropriate on this site and how we shouldn't talk politics, etc., remember that Cheney was secretary of DEFENSE under Bush the Father.
What do we think, dear DT readers?
