So Cheney and Wallace had no idea they were doing Frost/Nixon dialogue?

Transcript from the Cheney/Wallace interview on Fox this weekend:

Wallace:  "This is at the core of the controversies that I want to get to you with in a moment.  If the president during war decides to do something to protect the country, is it legal?"

Cheney: "General proposition, I'd say yes"

As if anyone thought Cheney might express even a bit of doubt.....

This has a familiar ring to it that seems unlikely for the participants not to have been aware of , though why I couldn't guess.  Who's zoomin' who?

Check out the trailer from the movie Frost/Nixon.  Its the same exchange except Wallace is a softball tosser and Frost had actual balls.  At about the 2 minute 20 second mark......
