Good for him. I imagine he has lots to tell.

Since everyone does it now, hop on the bandwagon, Dick.

I was trying to be funny...song title...I'm only talking about Cheney, per thread. I have nothing against authors. Politicians, I feel are overpaid for books etc. And to be fair Clinton is overpaid for his speeches.
