Cheney's Best Moment: On Gays

Kevin Drum's analysis of CNN's reaction meter makes perfect sense to me. I felt that Cheney showed a rare glimpse of greatness and integrity on the gay marriage issue:
According to CNN's little reaction meter gizmos, Cheney's best moment came when he talked about gay marriage. But wasn't that the very moment where Cheney came closest to disagreeing with George Bush? After a desultory discussion of state vs. federal control of marriage, he stopped dead and said merely that '[the president] sets the policy for this administration, and I support the president.' And he refused to answer the followup question. How much more clearly can you say that you disagree with the boss but really don't want to talk about it?
