Watching cheney must be a treat for body-language experts (clemons appears to have become one this past week!)
Russert asked about the Plame case - and Cheney reached for a glass of water. I wrote about Blitzer's June 05 interview with Cheney here, and noted that Cheney reached for his water when asked about the Downing Street Memo, and also when Blitzer asked about Rove using 911 for political purposes.
There was lots of interesting stuff from today's interview - particularly about what cheney would and wouldn't answer. I'm sure there's lots of blogging about the interview - but this struck me - let's go to the transcript (i've edited the transcript a bit)
MR. RUSSERT: What happens if the Democrats win the House of Representatives?... But do you fear serious oversight of the Bush administration?Interesting. A moment of accidental honesty? I wonder what he fears the most.
VICE PRES. CHENEY: We’ve had oversight all along, Tim.
MR. RUSSERT: With robust congressional hearings? ... Like the Democrats would have?
VICE PRES. CHENEY: On, on what?
MR. RUSSERT: On the war in Iraq, on weapons of mass destruction.
VICE PRES. CHENEY: We have those all the time now anyway.
MR. RUSSERT: No fears? No concerns?
VICE PRES. CHENEY: No. Not on that part.
