NATIONAL BRIEFING / VIRGINIA

Cheney sees a 'smooth and graceful transition'

November 09, 2008|Times Wire Reports

The Bush administration will make a "smooth and graceful transition of power" to the new president, who must protect the U.S. from enemies that continue to test the country on many fronts, Vice President Dick Cheney said Saturday.

"In the struggle at hand, the stakes remain high, but I am confident of the outcome," Cheney said in an address at Virginia Military Institute in front of about 3,000 people. "Those who hate America are no match for those who love America."

Addressing the 1,350 members of VMI's Corps of Cadets, Cheney said he had confidence in their ability to watch over the nation as long as it remains at war.
