I wonder....

.....if having Cheney sit with Bush to babysit and coach him on the right answers in front of the 9/11 commission is such a good idea for them. It could really backfire. For one thing, it's creepy. And it could really undermine their campaign. Bush is running on the image of The Cowboy, and being a sharp-shooting, quick-thinking loner is a big part of that image. Maybe they need to start selling Cheney & Bush as more of a buddy cop team, with Cheney as the grizzled old cop who is about to retire but is hanging in to train the hot-headed younger cop. Hey, they could even play good cop/bad cop with the 9/11 commission. But I don't really see that as working, because the what-me-worry frat boy inside Bush won't allow him to take this stuff seriously enough to play a good hothead.
