The following editorial appeared in Tuesday's Los Angeles Times: George W. Bush, who now regards himself as the president-elect, has named Dick Cheney, his vice presidential running mate, to oversee the transition that he expects to usher in a new Republican administration. Cheney, with his extensive Washington experience, is a sound choice.

Given that history, legitimate questions are being asked about his ability to cope with the stresses of high office.
