Random off-topic question of the day

In reading the Post's profile of Dick Cheney in retirement, nothing really struck me as surprising about the inner workings of the man. But the profile noted he's a voracious reader of history. So, whose books does Dick Cheney read, especially given his wife's views of the historical profession? I'm sure he ain't reading ours, historian friends, but has Michael Beschloss written that many books?

Maybe the scarier thought is what is Cheney reading that validates his worldview?

  1. According to the Gellman bio, Cheney admires Victor Davis Hanson and Eliot Cohen. So there's two of the enabling "historians."
