Atrios has an excerpt of
the article.
You can read it here also.

"By contrast, the Bush administration -- in seeking to restore what Cheney, a Nixon administration veteran, has called "the legitimate authority of the presidency" -- threatens to overturn the Framers' healthy tension in favor of presidential absolutism.

No previous wartime president has come close to making so grandiose a claim."
