Dick Cheney On Donald Trump

The man is a serious thinker, and his impression of Trump's first days as the President-Elect matches mine, which makes me, by the transitive property of thinking, a serious thinker.

But the second comment is just so awesome....

Cheney To CNN's Barbara Starr: Trump Took Us To Point Where We Don't Need You Guys Anymore

I think he needs to be careful but he'll learn as he goes along. I think he is putting some brains and good people with him. I am a big fan of Mike Pence. I know Mike well from his 12 years in the House and I think he's a great choice as Vice President. He's going to play a major role. I think Mr. Trump is taking very, very seriously the job that he has gotten now. Staffing up the administration.

I think one of the reasons people get so concerned about the tweets is it is sort of a way around the press. He doesn't have to rely upon, uh, rely upon -- this is the modern era, modern technology. He's at the point where we don't need you guys anymore.

I have to be careful to separate Trump's typical blustery, chaotic pronouncements from his actions. And I am cautiously optimistic based on his few concrete actions.
