Belated Christmas Coal for Romney

January 7th, 2012 No comments

Dick Cheney Encourages Hillary to Challenge Obama in 2012

September 7th, 2011 1 comment

Okay, I called this a couple of days ago when I posted this.  I think people thought I was kidding.  I wasn’t.  I truly believe that it is quite possible that Hillary Clinton could easily challenge Obama in 2012.  I believe those who supported her then, would support her now.  Plus, many who supported Obama in 2008 would seriously consider giving her their support today.

Now ABC News reports this:

Dick Cheney to Hillary Clinton: Run!

LOS ANGELES — Hillary Clinton for president?

By Michael Falcone

“So far she hasn’t said she would, but I think it’s not a bad idea,” former Vice President Dick Cheney told ABC’s Jonathan Karl in an interview on Wednesday to promote his new book “In My  Time.”

Cheney declined to say whether he thought the current Secretary of State would have been a better president than Barack Obama, but called her a “pretty formidable individual.”

“I think she’s probably the most competent person they’ve got in their– in their cabinet.  And– frankly, I thought she was gonna win the nomination last time around,” Cheney said. “Maybe if– the Obama record is bad enough– and these days it’s not very good, given the shape of the economy maybe there will be enough ferment– in the Democratic Party so that there will be a primary on their side.”
