Thursday’s Loose Thread

If conservatives had a problem with the Bush administration, it sure didn't materialize today when Dick Cheney made an appearance at a rally of conservative pooh-bahs.

"I think 2010 will be a phenomenal year for the conservative cause and I think Barack Obama is a one-term president," Cheney said to a standing ovation.

He walked out to applause, chants of "Cheney" and a standing ovation as he appeared after daughter Liz Cheney's speech.

"A welcome like that is almost enough to make me want to run for office," Cheney said, laughing. "But I'm not going to do it."

Are they cheering the Bush-Cheney policies or the Obama critiques? Do you wish he would run for office?
