WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Elizabeth Cheney, the daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney (news - web sites), will become the second-ranking U.S. diplomat for the Middle East, the State Department said on Monday.
Cheney, who previously worked in the department's Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs and left to work on her father's 2004 re-election campaign, will become the bureau's principal deputy assistant secretary of state.
This is the bureau's second ranking position and deputizes for the assistant secretary of state for near eastern affairs, the top U.S. diplomat for the Middle East.
State Department spokesman Richard Boucher told reporters Cheney would also serve as "coordinator for Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiatives" -- a U.S.-backed idea to try to spread democratic and economic reform in the region.
"Her duties will include a focus on U.S. bilateral and multilateral efforts to support freedom, democracy and expanded education and economic opportunities in the broader Middle East and North Africa," he said.
If you listen carefully you can hear the DUmmies' heads exploding :)
Anything to make them crazier than they already are, makes me very happy.
I believe she is being GROOMED for something bigger!!! This is very GOOD!
Hope *their* heads explode! Go Liz!
What's YOUR stupid point?
This appointment is how you insure that the career State Department bureaucrats aren't deliberately screwing up our foreign policies.
State Department sabotage is common (and has been for decades), but becoming less so under the Bush Administration.
I guess THAT was my stupid point.
Mary's lifestyle is her business. She isn't shoving it down people's throats.
Both Mary and Liz are assets to the Republican Party.
Well, I understood your point.
Correct me if I'm wrong Whistling, but I believe that that was sarcasm in reference to John F'ing Kerry's stupid statement about Mary Cheney during a debate.
Whistling's comment in that context is funny.
It's mocking John Kerry's line in the debate, silly.
Oh, you mean John Edwards?
OH I get it, Oh hahah! I'm sorry Whistling- that was really funny actually!
Gimme a break. It was a joke mocking Kerry's quote from the debates.
"Lighten up Francis"
No, John Kerry said it.
Funny just the same.
Nice choice -- the libs will go crazy, since they are the socialist party of ENVY. The libs could not produce, and have not produced, a respectable Presidential cabinet in decades. Such total losers, they can only fuel thier hate with the envy.
Just turn the hose on them and shut them up.
