This is just so scary that the thought sends chills down my spine.
Going further, McCain even told Hayes in comments heretofore unpublished that he'd consider Cheney for an administration post.
Asked whether he'd be interested in Cheney had the vice president not already have served under Bush for two terms, McCain said: "I don't know if I would want him as vice president. He and I have the same strengths. But to serve in other capacities? Hell, yeah."
Would McCain give Cheney his old job as Secretary of Defense back? The possibility just boggles my mind.
They have the same strengths? Well I guess they both share the paranoia common to NeoCons, and then there is their explosive tempers.
What does Cheney say about McCain?
After McCain said last year that Rumsfeld, Cheney's friend and mentor in the Ford administration, would "go down in history as one of the worst secretaries of defense in history," the vice president made plain his displeasure.
"I just fundamentally disagree with John," Cheney told ABC News in an interview. "John said some nasty things about me the other day and then, next time he saw me, ran over to me and apologized. Maybe he'll apologize to Rumsfeld."
It's nice to know the Republican Nominee is back on good terms with the Vice President.
