    Oh man, I loved Cheney.
    I don't perceive all that charm and likability as anything of substance- just an empty suit. Give me someone with a little testosterone, and some experience in something outside academia, any day of the week.

    The way Obama articulates points his intelligence is obvious. He certainly has less wisdom than Cheney as it seems that he is unable to apply his intelligence in a practical manner.

    OK. Here's a real mind bender for you:

    Dershowitz or Cheney?

    Hmmmm, that would take me more time for consideration. Dershowitz is probably more intelligence wrt IQ. I'd probably still consider Cheney more intelligent wrt real life.

    Dick Cheney is dumb as Dora and is responsible for not only the unnecessary loss of innocent Iraqi life, but the lives of young Americans as well. Misleading the people of the U.S. in that way is one of the dumbest moves in history.

    that is merely demonstrating you are completely unable to understand what the term intelligence means.
    using your criteria almost every president is "dumb" since they have all mislead the public in one way or another.

    Being dumb would imply that Cheney didn't have the ability to reason out a correct course of action given the data he had and the end goals he wanted to achieve. Cheney is not dumb. He knew exactly what he was doing. You're going to have to a different adjective to describe why he got so many people needlessly killed. I might start with evil.
