A very good op-ed in the Washington Post, Mickey Edwards – Dick Cheney’s Error, defending the Constitution and democracy. But reading it, I have to wonder where this guy has been for seven years?
It is Cheney’s all-too-revealing conversation this week with ABC News correspondent Martha Raddatz. On Wednesday, reminded of the public’s disapproval of the war in Iraq, now five years old, the vice president shrugged off that fact (and thus, the people themselves) with a one-word answer: “So?”
“So,” Mr. Vice President?
[. . .] When the vice president dismisses public opposition to war with a simple “So?” he violates the single most important element in the American system of government: Here, the people rule.
