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!!
