CNN has an interesting story about former American Vice-President Dick Cheney – http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/06/15/cia-head-suggests-cheney-hoping-for-terrorist-attack/
It seems the head of the CIA has hinted that Cheney is cynically hoping for a terrorist attack on American soil to boost his neo-conservative-counter terrorism arguements.
I admit it may be a slightly wildcard suggestion but could Vice-President Cheney be planning to run in 2012?
True he did not run in 2008 but maybe this was because post 2005 he knew the Bush legacy made it impossible to win.
It ’12 Cheney will only be 71 – younger than McCain was last year. And Younger than Regan in 84. And the same age as William Henry Harrison.
And who else have the GOP got. Sarah Palin?
She may be too controversial to win the nomination but the Republican base would love her as VP again to add some glamour to a Cheney headed ticket.
I appreciate Cheney is deeply unpopular – so there’s no way he’d beat Obama-Biden – unless there was a close shave with terrorism – that say the OBiden administration only just foiled – then Cheney might shine…
Stranger things have happened.
