Check it out:

Former President George W. Bush is in the midst of a media blitz to promote the Thursday opening of his presidential library and has generally projected a jaunty, at-peace air as he takes questions about his tumultuous eight years in the White House.

But a straightforward, C-SPAN-style question from C-SPAN’s Steve Scully in an interview set to air on the cable channel Wednesday night about a central figure in that administration met with a revealing coolness from Bush.

“There’s been a lot of attention, new documentary, on your vice president, Dick Cheney,” said Scully. “What has your relationship been like between you two since you left the White House?”

“You know it’s been cordial — but he lives in Washington and we live in Dallas,” Bush replied, sitting next to his wife, Laura. “One of the saddest things about departing Washington is that you miss your pals and a lot of people were there for all eight years and I became good friends with them, like Vice President Cheney.”
