LOS ANGELES Hillary Clinton for president?
So far she hasnt said she would, but I think its not a bad idea, former Vice President Dick Cheney told ABCs 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 shes probably the most competent person theyve 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 its 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 dont plan to endorse anybody till we get a lot farther down the road, he said.

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.
Yup: Run with scissors, Hillary;)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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
It would be a sequel. Did you sleep through the 2008 primaries between them already?
HAHAHHAHAH....Cheney still has a HUGE STICK that he pokes the Dems with!!!
Cheney be playing with Obama’s mind
but now cities would BURN.....people would be KILLEd and Blacks would not vote for Hillary.
>> Hes ok with the Fed?? Thats disturbing
Surprised? I’m not. I like and respect Dick Cheney, but he’s undeniably as “insider elite Republican” as one can be.
I keep sayin’, “Palin vs. Clinton 2012.”
Yeah, that’s what I took from it as well. I like Cheney, but he definitely has some globalist associations.
He also said that SS isn’t a Ponzi scheme. If it isn’t than Bernie Madoff needs to be released pronto.
Run Hilda, Run!
Why can’t men stand up for what is right? Really, I don’t understand it. Yes, I am somewhat surprised. Why not just keep his thoughts to himself and pass on those types of questions.
OPERATION CHAOS II: Cheney’s Revenge
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.
Ba-ding! The witch is out of the running!
It was like pulling teeth to finally get them out of there & then they stole our furniture to top it all off!!
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??
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...
>> Why cant men stand up for what is right?
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.
>> How hard is it to find people to stand up for RIGHT??
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...
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!
Truer words were never spoken. Thx NT
“Run, Hillary, run!”
That ain't saying much!
She has a broom. It’s much more efficient to fly all over the place on that thing.
Cheney’s trying to get dims to buy his book.
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.
Clinton would beat Palin by double digits.
In Leftist polling you betcha!
Of course. How do you think we got in this mess? Who do you think supported all of these candidates. They are all part of the season of financial corruption. We are the victims.
I was thinking more along the lines of a hunting trip...
>> Dick Cheney: “I think shes probably the most competent person theyve got in their in their cabinet.”
I’m not sure this will change her attitude towards Dick.
Old media friends say the private BO is very different than the hip, urbane, oh so cool public BO.
Sadly very true.
THAT is funny!
“Yeah, thats what I took from it as well. I like Cheney, but he definitely has some globalist associations.”
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.
I agree 100%.
Ugly Truth: They are going to burn and people are going to die regardless of whether he’s primaried or taken down in the general.
People need to be prepared because it IS GOING to happen.
The Dems get to keep them at home for 2012. They'll come back out and vote in 2014.
That is definitely what is called “damning with faint praise”. He just said their cabinet is seriously lacking in talent.
