Cheney Hearts Rummy

Isaac Chotiner is leafing through Steve Hayes' opus on Dick Cheney so you don't have to and uncovers an interesting anecdote, in which Cheney's staff is briefing him for an appearance on Chris Wallace's Fox News show and ask him if he agreed with the president's decision to sack Don Rumsfeld. "'Absolutely not,' Cheney replied without elaborating. His answer surprised the small group with him, but it was the answer he was determined to give if Wallace asked, even at the risk of angering his boss."

Wallace didn't ask the question, so nothing ever came of it.
