    Yes, there are. So how are you gonna choose between Cheney and Obama, intelligence-wise? Where's your yardstick?

He also had the highest score in the country in a well known competitive math exam that was open to graduate students in PhD programs. He had the highest GPA in the history of a well known extremely prestigious prep school that was founded before the civil war. yet he flunked out of Yale. The assistant Dean of Admissions told me that this man was the most qualified student he had seen apply to Yale in the 6 years he had been the AD.

    Cheney has had a very successful career and that counts far more than what he did as a 19 year old
    Yeah, yeah, yeah. You know a very smart guy who's not named Cheney or Obama.
    Cheney has had a career, sure. At age 53, he was CEO of Haliburton. At 53, Obama is President of the USA.

    Both of them are narcissistic assholes and both of them are terrible leaders.

    C'mon. Seriously?
    Is there a more successful career that twice President of the USA?

    uh if he's a lousy president-plenty of things. again, using your criteria you'd have to claim Bush is much smarter than Kerry, Romney, and others who lost presidential elections. Obama isn't stupid but he's hardly in the same league as saw GHWB, Clinton, Nixon, or Romney

    Cheney assumed the Presidency a couple times. I recall that one was when Bush was getting the camera run up his butt.
    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.
