s who are aware that Dick Cheney
is not just one of those vice-president
s who hangs around the Senate
waiting for a tie
It's not that he's a nanny for Dubya. Maybe vizier would be more accurate. In any case, Bush and Cheney are a team, and the leadership of the US would be significantly diminished were the veep to have a heart attack.
Don't get me wrong: George W. Bush is his own man, capable of making decisions. And he's got great advisors to tell him about those decisions. He went to Yale, you know.
But I do hope Dick Cheney stays healthy.
