Dick Cheney’s remark to ABC’s Jonathan Karl that John McCain’s 2008 selection of a running mate was a mistake has drawn the rebuke of his daughter.
John McCain was a little more pointed in his response to Cheney this morning on Fox News. He said he respects the former vice president, but pointed to their disagreements over the years, particularly on the subject of torture.
“I’m always glad to get comments four years later,” said McCain with a chuckle. “I respect the vice president. He and I had strong disagreements as to whether we should torture people or not. I don’t believe we should have. The fact is I’m proud of Sarah Palin. I’m proud of the job she did. I’m proud of the job she continues to do. Everybody has their own views and I respect those views. But I’m proud of what we did.”
Here’s the video of Cheney’s comments on Palin.
