As part of Katie Couric's interview series with both VP candidates, Palin and Joe Biden were asked to name the best and worst things that Cheney has done over the last eight years. The responses stood in stark contrast, to say the least.
Biden offered a withering critique of Cheney, charging that he had "done more harm than any other single elected official in my memory in terms of shredding the Constitution," citing the vice president's promotion of "torture as a policy" and the idea of the unitary executive.
Sarah Palin claimed that Dick Cheney's worst act as vice president was his "duck hunting accident." (In fact, Cheney accidentally shot his friend Harry Whittington during a quail hunting trip.)
