Yesterday I wrote about the possibility of former CNN host Lou Dobbs running for president in 2012, and today comes news a group of conservatives are trying to draft former Vice President Dick Cheney to run for president in 2012:
The organization – “Draft Dick Cheney 2012” – launched on Friday, and unveiled their new Web site. Their aim: To convince the former vice president to seek the Republican presidential nomination in the next race for the White House. But there may be a major roadblock to the group’s pitch – Cheney himself.
“The 2012 race for the Republican nomination for President will be about much more then who will be the party’s standard bearer against Barack Obama, the race is about the heart and soul of the GOP,” said Christopher Barron, one of the organizers of the Draft Cheney movement. “There is only one person in our party with the experience, political courage and unwavering commitment to the values that made our party strong – and that person is Dick Cheney.”
Dick Cheney for president in 2012? Yeah, good luck with that!
