The Bush Cheney Split

The Wash Post's Barton Gellman has a story about the seperation of President Bush and VP Cheney.
"In the second term, he felt Bush was moving away from him,' said a participant in the recent gathering, describing Cheney's reply. 'He said Bush was shackled by the public reaction and the criticism he took. Bush was more malleable to that. The implication was that Bush had gone soft on him, or rather Bush had hardened against Cheney's advice. He'd showed an independence that Cheney didn't see coming. It was clear that Cheney's doctrine was cast-iron strength at all times -- never apol,ogize, never explain -- and Bush moved toward the conciliatory.'
