Appearing on ABC’s This Week, frequent panelist and Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol tossed out the name of former Vice President Dick Cheney as a possible contender for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.

Prompted by host George Stephanopoulous to name “the most promising Republican candidate not in the race yet,” panel members named Jeb Bush — who has yet to announce — with Democratic strategist Donna Brazile suggesting 2012 GOP nominee, Mitt Romney.

“You know, I go back to Mitt Romney. I mean, look, you don’t like old faces, but you know what, he did run a good game last time,” Brazille said.

“If they get to nominate Hillary Clinton, why don’t we get to nominate Dick Cheney? I mean, he has a much… he has a much better record,” Kistol said as the entire panel burst into laughter.

“He has a much better record,” Kristol repeated as Smiley mock lamented, “God help us all.”
