Cheney Excited About Obama

Here's one to file under "Never thought you'd see the day." Dick Cheney is, according to Dick Cheney, excited about Barack Obama's inauguration. In an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, set to air on Sunday, Cheney not only cops to being excited about America's first black president, but he also admits that Obama's election is "really a remarkable story." After confessing to voting for John McCain, Cheney says, "I have the same feeling that I think many Americans have, that it's really remarkable that—what we're going to do here in a few days, is swear in the first African-American president of the United States. When I came to town in 1968, we'd had the Martin Luther King assassination, Bobby Kennedy assassination, riots in the cities, major, major disturbances, a lot of it racially motivated around the country. And in fact, things have changed so dramatically, that we're now about to swear in Barack Obama as president of the United States. That's really a remarkable story and I think a record of tremendous success and progress for the United States."
