Liz Cheney suggests Cheney/Palin ticket in 2012
During a discussion about replacing President Barack Obama, former Vice President Dick Cheney’s daughter Liz suggested that her dad might be a good Presidential candidate in 2012.
Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Liz Cheney mentioned her father’s name as the panel discussed replacing Obama following his decision to respect the Japanese Emperor by bowing during a formal greeting.
Fox News personalities felt compelled to cover Obama’s bow to Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko after conservative blogs attacked the president.
Bill Kristol brought up ex-Alaska governor and former VP candidate Sarah Palin. “Sarah Palin would not have bowed to the Emperor of Japan,” he said. “She wouldn’t have even curtsied to him.”
But Palin wasn’t the only presidential replacement Liz Cheney had in mind. “You can look at the comparison and think Cheney 2012,” she teased.
It wasn’t clear if she was joking but the Fox panel seemed to warm to the idea.
Kristol, who has long been an advocate for Sarah Palin, had an even better idea. “Cheney/Palin,” he suggested.
“Or Palin/Cheney. Don’t be sexist,” Chris Wallace replied.
