Dick Cheney left office as perhaps the most unpopular vice presidents in the country’s history, but the man known for his defiance of public opinion, continue the tradition in an exclusive interview with ABC News.
“I’m very comfortable with what I did, and why I did it, and how I did it,” he said.
When asked if he had any regrets, Cheney replied, “Not really.”
“You can’t be judged, and shouldn’t judge, people in those senior levels by the polls,” he told ABC News.
He does not spare his fellow Republicans, calling Sen. John McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin as his vice president running mate a “mistake.”
Cheney said Palin had been governor of Alaska for two years at the time and “did not pass the test” of being ready to be president.
