A boost to the McCain campaign, or the kiss of death? You decide.
Obama seizes the opportunity to bring it home:
"Earlier today Dick Cheney came out of his undisclosed location and he hit the campaign trail," Obama told a rally in Pueblo, Colorado, quoting Cheney as saying he was "delighted" to back McCain.Exactly. Thank you for reminding us, Obama.
"So I would like to congratulate Senator McCain on this endorsement, because he really earned it. That endorsement didn't come easy. Senator McCain had to vote with George Bush 90 percent of the time and agree with Dick Cheney to get it," Obama said.
"McCain had to serve as Washington's biggest cheerleader for going to war in Iraq and support its economic policies that are no different from the last eight years."
Totally unrelated: I can't believe I slept on this. Where have I been?
