I was listening to the radio, sorry can't remember who I was listening to, and they mentioned Chenney was more like a "Co-President" than vice president. Explaining that he has played a huge role in the policies of this administration. Also, I have heard that people think this is Chenney's Presidancy. Bush was just more electable etc.

What I'd like to know is; how do we know this? What are your opinions on this subject?

Glad to see this board and will be interested to see what perspective it gives on politics.

Thanks for your thoughts and ideas.

I know that at the beginning it was thought that Bush was a puppet for Cheney (because of Cheney's long record of experience), but I think that view is changing. I don't view Cheney as co-president, I view him as a support to the president if you kwim. I think that after 9/11 people saw Bush in a new light, saw that he is his own man and a leader in his own right.

I think it's true that one of the reasons that Bush chose Cheney is he made his campaign stronger and more desireable...the same reason Kerry chose Edwards.

I heard that too...but look at Kerry...no personality..horse-like features...and then look at Edwards...Kennedly like appearance, charasmatic....from the choices he had, I can see why he chose him.

Interesting. Makes you wonder why we put up with candidates from either party that behave this way. What are our choices, how do we the voter give our candidates the message of what is really important?
