    In his first interview since receiving a heart transplant last year in March, former vice president Dick Cheney bashed Sarah Palin's candidacy to be the possible incumbent to his position.  “Based on her background, she had only been governor for, what, two years?

Take this as a second piece of advice for picking your running mate, Mitt Romney.
