…I think we should be taking the possibility of a Dick Cheney bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 more seriously, for a run would be good for the Republicans and good for the country. (The sound you just heard in the background was liberal readers spitting out their lattes.)
Why? Because Cheney is a man of conviction, has a record on which he can be judged, and whatever the result, there could be no ambiguity about the will of the people. The best way to settle arguments is by having what we used to call full and frank exchanges about the issues, and then voting. A contest between Dick Cheney and Barack Obama would offer us a bracing referendum on competing visions.
Yeah, it’s a d–n shame that Tim McVeigh is no longer with us. Now there was a man of conviction! No qualifications for the presidency, nothing positive to offer, and a mass murderer to boot, but he had conviction.
Nothing is done… yet. If you don’t like what they are believed to be doing, tell them.
