Liz Cheney open to political run

The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday that running for political office is on her horizon.
"It's something I very well may do," said Elizabeth "Liz" Cheney, a lawyer and State Department appointee who has worked on two Republican presidential campaigns.
Ms. Cheney, 44, has emerged as one of the strongest defenders of the effectiveness and legality of Bush-Cheney policies on enhanced interrogation methods. More recently, she and her father have become two of the most outspoken critics of President Obama's position on terrorism and other national security issues, which has led Republicans to consider her a strong candidate for national political office.
Ms. Cheney told The Washington Times America's Morning News that recent new reports that her father ordered the CIA to hide information from Congress and that a government probe could follow appears like political cover for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats who have accused agency Director Leon Panetta of lying.
"It gets more and more appalling everyday," she said. "I think they're very worried about Speaker Pelosi."

Go Go Go!
She’s got my vote.
GO LIZ!!! Just don’t focus on GAY Rights issues.
I live nearby; I’d not only vote for her, I’d work for her campaign. I adore this woman and I want to be just like her when I grow up (assuming I ever do).
If we could get a few strong women elected, it might help some of the male elected officials find their b@11s...
Cheney/Palin or Palin/Cheney, preferably in 2012
Support for her on FR means she’ll be pilloried by the press. That said, I do believe she can hold her own with any member of the press. Go Liz!
It's not surprising the elites in the GOP are afraid of both of these women.
They both have shown they are the only ones in the GOP right now that have any balls at all.
She could focus on a woman's right to have 4 or 5 kids and a career at the same time--which she has done.
I sure hope she will run.
where does she live? where would she be running? i would love for it to be NOVA!
She’ll get my vote.
Winning ticket as early as 2012: Palin / Cheney (Liz, that is)!!
She is quick with facts and is in the right place to bring them forward. Go Liz !
Confusing her with Mary?
A Palin-Cheney ticket in 2012 is my idea of a dream ticket. It looks like there is at least a possibility that I may get my wish yet.
No.....just don’t want Mary;s Lesbianism to color Liz’s conservative message.
This woman is impressing me.
