Former Vice President Dick Cheney thinks the time is right for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run against U.S. President Barack Obama.
Mr. Obama’s approval numbers have tanked to the lowest level of his presidency amid reports that he plans to sink another $300 billion into a flawed jobs package that will send the national debt soaring even higher.
Obama’s prospects in 2012 don’t look good. Even Obama’s fellow Democrats are sprinting away from him as the chorus of “Run, Hillary, run!” grows ever louder.
Cheney stopped short of endorsing Hillary Clinton for president during an interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl yesterday. “I think she’s probably the most competent person they’ve got in their -– in their cabinet,” he said. “And -– frankly, I thought she was gonna win the nomination last time around,” he added.
“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.”
If Hillary decided to run in 2012 she would certainly have the support of the rabidly leftist media on her side — especially now that they’ve put down their cups of Kool aid.
