Cheney must not have gotten the message. He endorsed John McCain. That's the second best thing that Obama could have hoped for. Bush (with his 25% approval rating) has been conspicuous by his absence from the presidential campaign. McCain should have had Bush endorse Obama. A few months ago one poll showed that Cheney had an approval rating of 15% nationally. He endorsed McCain in a speech he gave in his home state of Wyoming, where his approval rating is just above 50%. Maybe he figured that nobody besides Wyoming residents would notice.
