Several of the candidates just offered veiled criticism of the power that President Bush has given to Vice President Cheney.
"I would be very careful that everybody understood that there is only one president," said McCain who added that the only two jobs of the vice president is to break tied votes in the Senate and "inquire daily about the health of the president" -- a line that drew laughs.
Brownback said that Bush has over-relied on Cheney's foreign policy experience at the start of his Administration.
Bush has drawn considerable criticism from Democrats, Independents and even some Republicans for allowing Cheney a broad palette of issues in which to be directly involved. Public opinion polls show Cheney is even less popular than Bush.
