Great news for McCain. Cheney emerged from his undisclosed location today to lend his hefty endorsement to the Arizona Senator. President Bush, on the other hand, has taken Cheney's place in the bunker and plans to stay out of sight for the next three days.
Barack Obama is all over it at a stop in Pueblo, CO.:
I'd like to congratulate Senator McCain on this endorsement because he really earned it. That endorsement didn't come easy. Senator McCain had to vote 90 percent of the time with George Bush and Dick Cheney to get it. He served as Washington's biggest cheerleader for going to war in Iraq, and supports economic policies that are no different from the last eight years. So Senator McCain worked hard to get Dick Cheney's support.
But here's my question for you, Colorado: Do you think Dick Cheney is delighted to support John McCain because he thinks John McCain's going to bring change? Do you think John McCain and Dick Cheney have been talking about how to shake things up, and get rid of the lobbyists and the old boys club in Washington?
