Conservative Commentator Wants The GOP To Nominate Dick Cheney

Bill Kristol, a political writer and commentator for The Weekly Standard, appeared on ABC’s "This Week" showing support for former vice-president Dick Cheney.

Kristol defended his view by saying “If they (Democrats) get to nominate Hillary Clinton, why don’t we get to nominate Dick Cheney? I mean, he has a much – he has a much better record." Tavis Smiley responded by saying "God help us all."

Kristol might not have much backing for his choice though. In January 2009, an ABC news polls showed only 30 percent of Americans supported Cheney. Yet, Kristol called Cheney an "everyday American" and said that states such as Ohio and Iowa would support Cheney given they align more with Cheney's foreign policy views and work ethic than they do with Hillary Clinton.

Kristol was also asked how the Republican Party can win more voters from voting blocks, such as Latinos and women. Kristol replied “Hillary Clinton is the easiest candidate against whom to expand the base. She (Clinton) will be challenged from the left in the Democratic primary and there will be a moment – she may not be defeated- but there will be a moment where she will not be the inevitable nominee I think."
