Dick Cheney to Hillary Clinton: Run!

LOS ANGELES — Hillary Clinton for president?

“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.”

During the interview, Cheney criticized several of the Republican presidential candidates, including front-runner Rick Perry whose comments about Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, Cheney described as “over-the-top.”

While Cheney sounded positive notes about Clinton, he said not to expect him to endorse anyone on the Republican side anytime soon.

“I don’t plan to endorse anybody till we get a lot farther down the road,” he said.

This has been discussed by Big Time Dems in DC for three months. It's been like a huge whisper campaign. Everyone, Ds and Rs included, has discussed it, but no one wants to speak openly about it.

Dems big question is; "How do we dump Obama in primaries, but still keep the Black and far-left vote.

Can you image a primary fight between these two. Video tapes of their debates would be the basis for some great Republican General Election commercials.

Can you imagine Michelle's sound bites!?!?!

P.S., don't misinterpret Cheney's remarks. He is not pushing Hillary. He is commenting on how bad Obama is by comparison.

I’m irritated though that he believes any ‘negative’ remarks about Bernake and the policies of the fed are over the top.

He’s ok with the Fed?? That’s disturbing

"Can you image a primary fight between these two."

It would be a sequel. Did you sleep through the 2008 primaries between them already?

...most did.

And it's reported that Hillary was the voice of reason against leaving only 3000 troops in Iraq, but was outvoted. Hilary the voice of reason, never thought I'd type that.

Surprised? I’m not. I like and respect Dick Cheney, but he’s undeniably as “insider elite Republican” as one can be.

Some FReepers have (credibly) asserted that the Baraqqis have a tactical nuke they can use on the Clintons if needed.

And that was the reason the Clintons, despite their vaunted private investigative team, never went after Baraq’s extremely suspect personal history.

Yeah, great idea, give the Slave Party an opening to run a stronger candidate, the Hildabeast, a committed Marxist since the day she left college. "Oh, but DICK CHENEY says she's a "MODERATE," and we all know how conservative he is."

Thanks a heap, Dick.

Sometimes I wish these people would just STFU and go away.

It is really depressing to hear the ‘inner’ thoughts of these people. Laura Bush was another shocker for me. Pro-gay, pro-choice(pro-death). Betty Ford not to mention the long list of idiots out of Hollywood.

How hard is it to find people to stand up for RIGHT??

They can't.

It would also have the interesting effect of forcing the donks to vote in their own primaries in open primary states.

If little bammy has no opposition the donks could vote (at least here in Texas) for spoiler candidates in the republican primaries as their vote is not needed in the non-existent dem primary.

They would have to choose between their "clever scheme" of voting in the pub primary or supporting their boy king...

He thinks he IS doing that. The elites really deep down believe they know what’s best for all of us. They’re special, and very smart, don’t you know, bless their hearts. But time has passed them by and the house of cards they built is about to fall.

Look, Hitlery is horrible. But she would be, at minimum, three times a better placeholder than Hussein. Hussein is a disaster. Hitlery would be a train wreck, but not a full blown disaster.

To stand up for right, people first must KNOW right from wrong.

The true solution doesn’t lie with politicians. It rests completely on whether or not we return to our foundations as a people who look to the LORD and His Word for “instruction in righteousness”.

If we get that part right, the politicians we choose to lead us will fall into line — naturally.

If we don’t... well...

They have governed this way for years. They have compromised, changed laws and have weakened us to the point that Obama was elected. The problem with the house of cards analogy is that the house of cards are collapsing on US as well thanks in large part to these attitudes.

Doesn't believe SS is a ponzi scheme?...how can he justify a remark like that?

My brother and I were discussing voting the other day. Each of us are conservative and have voted for so-called conservatives all of our adult lives. Now..we feel nothing less than betrayed. They've ALL sold us down the drain. Both parties are responsible for this catastrophic situation that we are in. And that I see INCLUDES CHENEY!

Hillary Clinton needs to have the most mindblowing sex of her life, from dusk until dawn with a masculine man who a true master of his yang, and in the AM when she is truly besotted, exhausted, and unable to walk, he needs to whisper in her ear just before he heads out into the day, that he is a conservative card carrying Tea Party member. Then the healing can begin ;^)

Has a sitting President ever not won his own nomination back? I think this would be precedent setting if “O” lost office this way.

Well, if so, I guess out of all the registered Democrats at Memory Gardens Cemetery in Hempstead County, AK, there will be at least one who will probably vote for the Republican opponent.

Agreed...he has our very best interests at heart from a patriotic sense but he is a CFR guy. I still would have him over for dinner and a scotch though.
