Kerry Not Looking for a Cheney:

In considering his VP choices, Kerry is also said to have considered what he does not want: a Dick Cheney.

From today√?¬Ę√Ę‚??¬¨√Ę‚??¬Ęs Washington Post story:

“Cheney is figuring in Kerry’s thinking. Kerry has told friends he wants a strong, loyal Democrat but not a co-president. He said that Cheney appears to have so much authority he often upstages the president, which, in turn, Kerry believes weakens the presidency.

“‘Cheney is the prime minister — John would never allow that,’ said Richard C. Holbrooke, a Kerry friend and campaign adviser. ‘John has foreign policy experience. He does not need a prime minister.'”
