Obama on 60 Minutes

He took up a fair number of those 60 Minutes. Notice when he talks about Cheney, he gets serious, and close to judgmental. Obama does not like passing judgment on people, but he comes close to flat-out denouncing him. I found it interesting that he usually refers to him in this interview as "Vice President Cheney." He's using the formal title for a couple of reasons. First, to make it clear that there is no familiarity between the two of them. Second, although Obama respects the office of the Vice President, he does not necessarily respect the person who held it immediately previously.
