Lynne Cheney: 2008 Presidential Candidate?

By John W. Lillpop

Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, endeared herself to conservatives recently by nailing CNN’s Wolf Blitzer to the wall.

Appearing on Blitzer’s Situation Room, Mrs. Cheney asserted that CNN specials on the 2006 elections contained "terrible distortions of the president's and vice president's positions on many issues.”

Cheney showed that she knows exactly how to deal with the liberal media when she asked Blitzer "What is CNN doing running tapes of terrorists shooting Americans?" Her sharpest question was "Do you want us to win?” and echoed the sentiments of conservatives everywhere who are fed up with the bias and anti-American pap served up by CNN and other liberal media outlets.

The larger question begging to be answered as a result of Cheney’s spectacular performance: Has she tossed her hat into the ring as a possible candidate for the Republican nomination for president in 2008?

History could be in the making if Mrs. and Mr. Cheney become running mates for the top jobs at the White House in 2008. She could be the first woman to serve as U.S. president, and with Dick Cheney back for a third term as vice president, the Cheney-Cheney tandem would be another first in American history.

Adding to her appeal, Lynne Cheney has all the qualities needed to serve as America’s CEO.

Specifically, she is:

* A woman with executive-level skills and abilities

* Highly intelligent and articulate

* Photogenic and media savvy

* Author of several books

* Former television panelist and co-host

* Knowledgeable on domestic and foreign issues

* Conservative

However, Lynne Cheney’s greatest asset is something she is not: Namely, Mrs. Cheney is not Hillary Clinton!

That alone could earn her tens of millions of votes from Americans unwilling to turn this great nation over to the most divisive personality in contemporary politics.

Run, Lynne, run!
