Dick Cheney, the most powerful American vice-president in history, thinks his considered opinion was ignored under Bush's second term. His upcoming memoir, as reported by Barton Gellman in this morning's Washington Post, purports to detail the inconveniences he believed he suffered. These include:
* Bush bowed to hostile public opinion
* Bush "moved away" from him on waterboarding, secret CIA prisons, and domestic surveillance
* Bush ignored the possibility of "regime change" in North Korea and Iran
* Bush fired Rumsfeld and left Scooter Libby out to dry
But now, writing his own account of his eight years as George W. Bush's vice president, Cheney is telling friends that "the statute of limitations has expired" on tensions between them.
As Time magazine reported last month, Cheney was furious at Bush for not pardoning Scooter Libby, the vice presidential aide who, in Cheney's words, "was asked to stick his neck in the meat grinder" by not disclosing all he knew about who leaked CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity to the press.

I highly doubt we will see anything new or earth shattering.
I think you're right it's all a publicity stunt. But you know the masses will fall all over themselves and pay top dollar for the privilege of being lied to.
