Cheney's Memoir

I don't plan to buy it.

The things being said about it fit my own sense of history.  That Bush let Cheney run the show his first term.  That Bush was a lot wiser the second term.  That Powell was the voice of wisdom the first term and that Cheney is mostly responsible for the Iraq War.

I predict history will be sympathetic to Bush... and quite hostile to Cheney.

Surely bush will go down as a weak leader who let himself be dominated by his deputy.

I have not read the book, but from what I am seeing/hearing, one would think he would take the opportunity to help his image. Instead, he is digging himself into a deeper hole.

The news today from The Ticket/Reuters:

"Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is the third senior official from President George W. Bush's administration to accuse Dick Cheney of lying in his new memoir, "In My Time."

Rice v. Cheney: most people are going to side with Rice.
