“Serious health issues have recently arisen in our family, and under the circumstances, I have decided to discontinue my campaign,” Ms. Cheney said in a statement. “My children and their futures were the motivation for our campaign and their health and well-being will always be my overriding priority.”At the time, we suspected that what was really making Liz sick were her poll numbers, which showed her getting crushed in the GOP primary. And now, adding weight to the theory that her excuse had all the credibility of her father's claims about Iraqi WMD, D.C. gossip site Politico reports she's been very active in the beltway since dropping out of the campaign.
But the real scoop in Politico's story is that Liz Cheney may not yet be done terrorizing and/or amusing the nation with her brand of politics, because ...
... several of Liz Cheney’s friends also say she could well make another bid for elected office.So take it from the guy who chose Sarah Palin to be John McCain's vice presidential running mate: Liz Cheney is not only planning to run again, she'll be a stronger candidate when she does.
“I have no doubt that if Liz Cheney’s ambition is to be a senator, governor or member of Congress, she’s going to achieve that ambition,” said Steve Schmidt, a former senior aide to the vice president and personal friend of Liz Cheney’s. “She’s clearly going to run in Wyoming, and at some point, it’s going to be an open seat or there will be an opportunity to run. … And I just think that she will be a stronger candidate.”
