WASHINGTON (CNN) – Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney and a former State Department official, said Tuesday that she isn't planning to run for public office anytime soon, but didn't rule out the possibility for the future.
Cheney, who has made headlines recently for an ambitious public campaign defending her father and attacking the Obama administration's national security strategy, said she is currently too busy at home to run for office.
"It's not something I'm focused on right now, I do have five little kids and I'm helping my dad to write his memoirs," Cheney said Tuesday in an interview on Fox News and posted on ThinkProgress.org.
"So I have a pretty full plate right now, but it's certainly something I could," she said before getting interrupted.
But Cheney's comments aren't the first time this possibility has come up. Former President Bush's top strategist Karl Rove was asked on Monday in an interview with Fox News if he thought that she should run for office. He responded, "she might."
public office, I hope she means like a post office or a lost and found department at the greyhound station.
Liz will be lucky to avoid charges for crimes against humanity in colluding with the foreign policy of her father's terrorist regime. She'd probably have had a pretty good chance to break the gender barrier in the Reichstag, circa 1932, but alas, that window has passed.
Great news! This woman rocks. Liz is smart, conservative, and able to get her message across. Exactly what the GOP needs.
Richard Pryor,where are you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She would do well in office
I wish you well if you're just half the patriot and great American your Dad is. We have got to to win the country back from these left-wing activists that are determined to bankrupt the country to satisfy their narrow-minded agenda.
Go for it, Liz
HA H HA HA HA – no one would vote to put another cheney in a DC position on power EVER – her daddy and her mouth ruined that - for sure.
That would be AWESOME!!! Go Liz!!! Palin/Cheney 2012. Libs heads will explode. Hahaha
No wonder! That's why she is barking together with her dad. Please, don't think Americans are as dumb as you.
Surely this gal is smarter than to run for office so soon after her father helped deep-six our country. She needs to hold off and let people simmer down a little before jumping into that fire!
Another Cheney???? No thanks.
Liz is a very capable intelligent lady who is unafraid to debate the issues. I have seen her destroy ignorant leftists on many occassions.
Don't know anything about her politics, but if she's like her father she would have one vote. (the sound of liberals crying in the distance)
Liz Cheney is brilliant. She is a great asset to the Republican Party, and may one day end up in the White House. I love her!
I think shes wonderful...hope she actually does it!
What position was it Mitt Romney chose her for during the primary? I thought she would be great in a Romney cabinet...She is a very smart young lady and comes from good stock....intelligent and a conservative...Romney 2012!!!!
please run for any office. that would be great for the DNC
That would be awesome, Go for it when you're ready, Girl!
P.S. I laugh at the one daily who laughs at Limbaugh daily.
A candidate only the lunatic fringe would love.......
Unless you want to dance with Rush and Dick, you don't have a chance. You are way to smart to get the vote of their followers. Too bad. I think you'd do well.
I think we have had one Cheney too many in public office!
She would be a great leader. I hope she does.
Liz has my vote!
Just what the world needs – another Cheney to make horrendous decisions for the country. Didn't she do enough damage at the State Dept in her 'father's administration'? Focus on your kids, Liz, and pray that they don't grow up as hopeless as the rest of your family.
