At a get out the vote rally in Laramie, Wyoming, today, Vice President Dick Cheney heralded the McCain-Palin ticket.
DICK CHENEY: And in three days we’ll choose a new steward for the presidency and begin a new chapter in our history. It’s the biggest decision that we make together as Americans. A lot turns on the outcome. I believe the right leader for this moment in history is Senator John McCain. John is a man who understands the danger facing America. He’s a man who has looked into the face of evil and not flinched. He’s a man who’s comfortable with responsibility and has been since he joined the armed forces at the age of 17. He’s earned our support and confidence, and the time is now to make him commander-in-chief. I’m delighted to support John McCain and I’m pleased that he’s chosen a running mate with executive talent, toughness and common sense, our next vice president in Sarah Palin.
Needless to say, the ones sending this information around are not Republicans but Democrats.
I would be surprised if Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., did not pounce on this public endorsement by the man who is not the most popular vice president in the history of this nation at his next event in Pueblo, Colorado.
