Here’s a sobering fact: If only 79% of people who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 do so in 2012, he’ll likely lose to either Mitt Romney or Rick Perry.
Dick Cheney, the de facto president from 2001 to 2009, told ABC News’ Jonathan Karl in an interview Wednesday he wants to see Hillary Clinton run for president against Barack Obama.
“So far she hasn’t said she would, but I think it’s not a bad idea.”
“Hillary Clinton is a pretty formidable individual. I think she’s probably the most competent person they’ve got in their cabinet. And, frankly, I thought she was gonna win the nomination last time around.”
Cheney ended with a truth we will never hear from DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz:
“Maybe if the Obama record is bad enough and these days it’s not very good, given the shape of the economy, maybe there will be enough ferment in the Democratic Party so that there will be a primary on their side.”
