Cheney – Not Bush’s “First Choice” for VP?

Apparently not. Here’s Sen John McCain on the Early Show, from March of this year:

McCain: “Look, I don’t want to be Vice President of the United States, I do not want to leave the Republican party, I would not be Vice President of the United States on either ticket. I told President Bush when he asked me in 2000 if, when he asked me if I was interested, I said I was not interested. I love being in the United States Senate and I am of the party of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. I can not categorically more state, answer no.”

Don’t have an official transcript yet, so I will rely on a conservative media research site until an official one is located.
