        running for office if she chooses. She has as much right as the next person to do so. My issue with her is her carpetbagging to Wyoming, a state she has never lived in, giving the excuse that Cheneys have lived in Wyoming since 1852 so nobody should have a problem with her flying in from McClean, VA to run a senate campaign.

        Lee and Paul at least had spent time in their respective states before running for office. And as politically connected as Lee's family is, I dont think many people saw him as riding the family name to an office he felt entitled to. That certainly isn't the case for Rand Paul who cashed in on daddy's fame and network to get his seat.
