Cheney has this ‘little-girl crush on strongmen.’

The Washington Post updates the progress of Bush’s “freedom agenda.” Peter Baker writes, “Two and a half years after Bush pledged in his second inaugural address to spread democracy around the world, the grand project has bogged down in a bureaucratic and geopolitical morass, in the view of many activists, officials and even White House aides.” Complaining about the influence of Cheney, one official tells the Post, “OVP [Office of Vice President] has this little-girl crush on strongmen.”

UPDATE: Laura Rozen suggests a few things that Baker may have missed.
