What would Cheney do about the whole secrecy thing then? I mean, this is the guy that sicced Enron on Gray Davis and the state of California to embarrass Davis, trigger the recall and then watched Arnold Schwarzenegger' become governor of California. (To this day, perhaps, still the low point in American political life.) Then Cheney covered it up.
HighVizPR note: I saw Alec Baldwin, a history buff an a very astute man, on Bill O'Reilly's show a couple of years ago (yes, I am married to MR. REPUBLICAN aka "Mr Potato Head") It was the first time that Alexander Baldwin, whose dad was a history teacher, called Veep Cheney "Dr. Strangelove" and said that Cheney was really running the country. Ah, so! Cheney is Prez, Rove is really Veep and Bush is FIGURINE -- figurehead. That makes sense. And there is a resemblance (pictured)!
Who is "Dr. Strangelove"? If you are a youngster, and have no idea what or who "Dr Strangelove, or how I stopped worrying and started to love the BOMB" (1964) is, I suggest you run to the nearest video store and pop in a DVD. GO RIGHT NOW!
