Obama called Cheney to wish him well

This is classy and deserves to be noted. NYT:

President Obama called former Vice President Dick Cheney at home to wish him a speedy recovery from his latest heart attack, a rare truce in the fiery, arms-length debate the two have been having about national security over the last year.

It’s kind of sad that we have to make a big deal about one human being expressing empathy for another human being, whatever their differences. But that’s the world we live in. Kudos to President Obama, and may his example be followed by all who claim to admire him.
