This is awkward as the Australian American Leadership Dialogue meeting at which I posed a question to Vice President Cheney was off the record — but it’s out there now in the New York Times.
It was a fascinating, little bit scary moment because the Vice President after speaking for quite a while about a lot of tough subjects just went stone silent after I posed a question on North Korea.
I hear that Cheney did look back when he was leaving the stage and did flash me a semi-friendly grin, or at least others thought that was what it was. I’m not so sure.
