Little Scottie does not consider Cheney to be part of the campaign:
Q Scott, is the President at all troubled by the distinctly negative tone the campaign seems to have taken since the convention and going forward in these last few —
MR. McCLELLAN: That’s why — I mean, you’re seeing a real contrast here. The President went to New York and outlined a positive and hopeful vision for the country. He talked about where he wants to lead this country in the war on terrorism, and our efforts here at home to provide more opportunity for all Americans. And the Democrats are resorting to recycling old attacks from the past to tear down the President. I think we have great confidence in the American people to see through these kind of attacks.
Q How did the Vice President’s comment fit into that description you just gave?
MR. McCLELLAN: What do you mean?
Q His comment, when he basically said that voters have a choice in the election, and if they make the wrong choice, that we could get hit by a terrorist attack.
MR. McCLELLAN: I think the Vice President actually — I think you all have something on the wire now, talking about his interview with — I believe it was a Cincinnati paper.
