We know the globe-running, terror-fighting, meeting master Vice President Cheney, but did you know his parents were hardcore Democrats? or that he thought his father turned into a bird (albeit at a pretty young age), or that he was first refused a job when he came to DC? As we discuss with Tim Pearson, author of Second Fiddle, The Strange, Sick, Silly, Sad and Soused Men We Elected Vice President. Cheney’s story goes from the football field, to Yale, to the slammer and eventually to the Oval Office. As part of our summer Vice Presidents series, we discuss Cheney before the first Bush Presidency.
