Interview with Dick Cheney (1994)  

I wonder what information he got between this interview in 1994 and his election to Vice President that made him change his mind.

I think it's a support issue.
He probably didn't change his mind all that much, but he's the vice president. It's possible that he advised against this move behind closed doors, but the president decided to go ahead with it anyway - and it doesent look good to have a Vice President and President disagreeing with each other in the public eye - there would be nothing to gain from it and it would just cause the entire administration to lose face. Once the choice had been made and he could no longer stop it, all he could potentially do would be to try to steer it in the best direction possible

This is just a guess. I don't actually know any facts here.
