Into the Dark

A long time reader chimes in …

My boss spent a lot of time working with Cheney when he was Sec. of Defense (**** redacted ****). Despite being a liberal Democrat he had a huge amount of respect for both Cheney’s intellect and character before he became VP. I don’t really buy it either, but he swears that Cheney underwent some sort of transformation, possibly due to a stroke.

It sort of baffles me too. I think a lot of people just fooled themselves about Cheney’s politics. But I’ve had enough people (with sufficient proximity to speak with some authority) say things like this that I think it’s possible that something characterologically changed about Cheney between 1993 and 2001.
