In the middle of the interview, host Chris Wallace revealed that Graham had said (privately, presumably) that he thought of his audience for the segment as the 2012 Republican candidates.

Is Dick Cheney Afraid Of Bill O'Reilly?

Bill O'Reilly has been complaining forever that Dick Cheney won't come on his show - despite going on just about every other Fox News show. So last night (9/15/11) Liz Cheney appeared with O'Reilly and they had a rather spirited debate - mostly about the supposed success of the Iraq war, including Liz Cheney actually insisting we were greeted as liberators in Iraq.
