What a shocker!

McCain Unlikely to Use Cheney In Campaign.

I don't get it. Why wouldn't he want an old, cranky, evil, low-rated, sneering geezer to help him out? I mean, just being seen with Cheney ought to score some political points with those young people I've been hearing about lately. The best idea would be to bring him to some southwestern state where they're afflicted with drought. The dark stormclouds that automatically form over the vice president's head will give the thirsty residents some hope.

From that article:

In an interview he gave to the Weekly Standard’s Stephen Hayes in 2006... McCain said: “I will strongly assert to you that he has been of enormous help to this president of the United States.”

"They had a goal of bringing down the administration's approval ratings, and by God was he an achiever in that regard."

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.”

"For instance, if there were some kids on the White House lawn making trouble, I'd bring him out on a chain in order to scare them off. If they were poor children, maybe I wouldn't even use the chain."
