‘Small crowd’ turns up for fundraiser featuring Cheney.

Vice President Dick Cheney headlined a fundraiser for Rep. Jeff Miller (R-FL) on Thursday. While Cheney gave some of his standard lines — “One great lesson of 9/11 is that we have to stop treating terrorist attacks as a law enforcement problem” — only a “small crowd” turned out to hear them. A sponsor of the event blamed the low turnout on the lack of a “more competitive two-party system.”
