Cheney Says Palin Could Be Successful VP

Vice President Dick Cheney told reporters traveling with him overseas that there isn't any reason why GOP VP nominee Sarah Palin wouldn't be a good vice president if elected. "We've had all kinds of vice presidents over the years and everybody brings a different set of experiences to the office and also a different kind of understanding with whoever the president is," Cheney said according to Reuters. "Each administration's different and there's no reason why Sarah Palin can't be a successful vice president in a McCain administration," he said, adding that he liked her speech to the GOP convention last week. "I thought her appearance at the convention was superb," he said. "I watched that with great interest. I loved some of her lines - what was the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull? It's lipstick," he said "with a laugh," according to the report.
