George W. Bush on whether there's a disconnect between the president's newfound tough talk on Iraq and Dick Cheney's claim that the United States has had "enormous success" there: "Oh I don't think so; I think the V.P. is a person expressing a half-glass-full mentality. And that is, he's been able to look at -- as have I and I hope other Americans have -- the fact that the tyrant was removed, 12 million people voted and an Iraqi constitution is in place that is a model for -- and is unique for -- the Middle East."
