An article by the Associated Press in Washington reported that after being interviewed about the war in Iraq, Vice President Joe Biden said that "I am very optimistic about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration." This was criticized by former Vice President Dick Cheney who said that the credit for the war should be given to the Bush administration. He said that while the Obama administration can take credit for what they have accomplished while there in this presidency, they must also give credit for the earlier achievements of the the Bush administration.
