SCHIEFFER: So you think that [Colin Powell is] not a Republican?I know of several liberal Democrats who voted for Ronald Reagan. They're still liberal Democrats. Dick Cheney left office with an 18% "positive" rating. Apparently he's out to lose a few more converts.
CHENEY: I just noted he endorsed the Democratic candidate for president this time, Barack Obama. I assumed that that is some indication of his loyalty and his interest.
