Cheney? What the heck are you doing here?

John McCain is in Baghdad this morning. CNN’s John King, in Baghdad, notes that when McCain was in the Green Zone with Joe Lieberman and Lindsey Graham, one hallway in the green zone was secured by the detail for them, the other by the security detail for… Vice President Dick Cheney, making a simultaneous surprise visit to Iraq.

King notes, “for a moment, walking the halls felt like walking through the U.S. Capitol Building.”
In 2000, what were the odds that both vice-presidential candidates would meet in a hallway in Saddam’s palace?
