Alex Massie points to this item from a Cheney television appearance:

“I’m totally neutral in the upcoming presidential contest. I will support the Republican nominee. And the fact that others have signed on with Fred or John McCain or Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, they’re all good men. I hope one of them is the next president of the United States. But I haven’t gotten involved in any of those efforts.”

Clearly, Cheney understands that Fred needs no last or other names, since his fame and reputation are already legend.  After all, he has…delayed the announcement that he will be entering the race until September and basically done none of the work needed to build a campaign organisation.  The Cheney-Fred connection becomes more clear by the day.
