WaPost's Chris Cillizza on Former VP Dick Cheney: He's Good for Obama

Dick (Five Deferments) Cheney—one of the least popular people in American public life—keeps talking about his magnificent strategy for keeping the nation safe from terrorists.

Cheney was on television once again Sunday, trying to show that hardball (that is, Republican) tactics are the only thing the terrorists understand.

Those weenie Democrats want to coddle the terrorists, or so Cheney claims. Why Democrats want to actually follow the rule of law! What nerve!

But the Washington Post's Chris Cillizza gets it right:
The more Cheney talks -- about almost anything -- the more people (especially independent voters) are reminded about what they didn't like about the last administration. And, that's very good for the Obama White House.
UPDATE: TMP's Josh Marshall reflects on the former vice president's eight years in office:
I miss Dick Cheney's unbroken record of success.
