Joe Biden is officially running for the Democrat nomination, and it’s possible he’ll soon be including some backpedaling the mix:
Joe Biden: "I actually like Dick Cheney… I get on with him. I think he's a decent man."
He adds that Cheney was "extremely helpful" about the "legal parameters" of the VP office. Without irony.
Mondale then says his view of Cheney is "a little bit different." The crowd laughs pic.twitter.com/udjSlSCrZV

Dick Cheney was the architect of war crimes, but OK. https://t.co/53PRbdNZ26

Without any exaggeration, Dick Cheney is one of the most evil men to set foot in this world, a man behind whom a trail of war crimes follow, and Biden think he's a "decent man".
Is this your man, Democrats? https://t.co/9msgJ5GM1V

Hey Democrats, you nostalgic about the Bush years? You know, perpetual war, civil liberties violations, shooting friends in the face? Yeah? Then you're in luck! Biden is your guy. https://t.co/tvb63zKLMZ
