The Cheney Primary?

Text settings

Not a great surprise that Dick Cheney should look kindly on Fred Thompson's odd campaign for the Presidency, given that the Vice-President's daughter has already signed up to this nonsense. Nonetheless it was good of Cheney to essentially confirm this on Larry King Live:

"I'm totally neutral in the upcoming presidential contest. I will support the Republican nominee. And the fact that others have signed on with Fred or John McCain or Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, they're all good men. I hope one of them is the next president of the United States. But I haven't gotten involved in any of those efforts."

Emphasis added of course.
