Cheney's Judgment on Rumsfeld

Tim Russert mentioned this on Meet the Press this morning, and I could not resist posting it.

Apparently, at Donald Rumsfeld's recent resignation send-off, Vice President Cheney deemed the outgoing secretary "the finest secretary of defense this nation has ever had".

Russert then asked an outstanding question - if Rumsfeld is the best secretary of defense in the history of the United States, why did President Bush ask for his resignation in the middle of a war?

I normally like to have a little more substance to my posts, but I do not think this requires any further comment. Additionally, though it admittedly might make me feel good to rant about the decisions Rumsfeld has made that have harmed this nation, it would be of little value to do so.

He is gone. History will render its judgment. Our time is best used looking after today and tomorrow.

The Vice President exhibiting a major disconnect from reality scares me. The President doesn't; he's a moron, and I expect it. But the Vice President isn't a moron, so when he is this far out there, you know it's out of evil, not out of stupidity.
