Dick Cheney is deluded. With the US economy in a recession, he claims it still is the envy of the world. That disconnect from reality is denial, a common trait amongst those within the Bush administration. It's the main reason the country is screwed over now, and why this election is important, so we elect a person who is in touch with reality.
Remember Dennis Kucinich? I know a lot of people who'd like to see him have been the Democratic nominee. But he dropped out when it looked like he wasn't going to get the nomination. Same with John Edwards. So why is Hillary Clinton sticking around, even though her support is waning? Is it because she's as out of touch with reality as the Bush administration, or their heir apparent, John McCain? She certainly has displayed herself to be as racist as a Republican. Perhaps omeone should inform her that the GOP has 1200 pages of dirt to throw at Hillary (which is why they hope she gets the nomination).
