Dick Cheney to Hillary Clinton: You’re our only hope

(By Ed Morrissey, Hot Air) - Well, 'okay', Dick Cheney didn’t 'exactly' call Hillary Clinton our only hope.  The former VP did say on his book tour that Hillary might be the only hope that Democrats have of keeping the White House in 2012 — and he’s probably right:

“I think it would be good for the country [for Clinton to run for president], I think that it would be good for the Democratic Party – it might even help the Republicans a little bit,” the former Vice President said with a smirk, in an interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl on Wednesday to promote his new memoir, “In My Time.”

The former vice president said that Clinton might have an opening due to the stagnant economy.

“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,” said Cheney.

“So far she hasn’t said she would [run], but I think it’s not a bad idea,” said Cheney.
