Political motivation behind Cheney not being welcome.
I don’t know who should be believed in the McCain camp – one says one thing and the other says another. But what is common in both statements is that Cheney isn’t welcome – I wonder if they will do the same for GW – telling him that he is a liability to the campaign so stay away.
One GOP official told CNN there’s a “mutual understanding” between Cheney’s office and the McCain camp that he is “unlikely” to attend the convention.
A second Republican official said there are still “talks going on” between Cheney’s office and the McCain camp and both sides are “still trying to work it out.”
Cheney has a lower opinion poll rating than Bush – that has to be a first?
One thing that is also surprising is that many former Republicans are registering themselves as independents. That can mean, but there is no proof, that many Republicans want to vote for Obama but are doing it cloaked.
This has to be very worrying for the GOP.
