Neo-Conservative Bill Kristol Suggests Dick Cheney Runs For President

Featured Image -- 15592During a Sunday panel discussion on ABC, host George Stephanopolous had asked guests to name “the most promising Republican candidate not in the race yet,” according to Raw Story.

Vehement Neo-Con, co-sponsor of the Iraq war, and Editor of the right-wing publication The Weekly Standard Bill Kristol said, “If they get to nominate Hillary Clinton, why don’t we get to nominate Dick Cheney?” as other panelists laughed. “I mean, he has a much… he has a much better record.”

On Tuesday, Newsmax host Steve Malzberg asked Kristol if Cheney could defeat Clinton in a 2016 race.

Kristol tried to explain his suggestion that Dick Cheney should run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 and argued that the former vice president was just an “everyday American.”

This website previously posted that Coca-Cola executive Wendy Clark took leave from Coca-Cola to work for possible Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

That post is being retracted and OK, Fine apologizes and regrets the error.

That information was printed in the right-wing publication The Weekly Standard.  There was also information about it in the Wall Street Journal, and Beverage Digest.

The editor (and founder) of The Weekly Standard is the right-wing neo-conservative pundit William “Bill” Kristol.

While Wall Street Journal confirmed that Clark indeed has taken an unpaid leave of absence from Coke, there is no confirmation from any source that she has taken a job for Hillary Clinton.


“William Kristol (born December 23, 1952) is an American neoconservative political analyst and commentator. He is the founder and editor of the political magazine The Weekly Standard and a political commentator on several networks.

“Kristol is associated with a number of prominent conservative think tanks. He was chairman of the New Citizenship Project from 1997 to 2005. In 1997, he co-founded the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) with Robert Kagan. He is a member of the board of trustees for the free-market Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, a member of the Policy Advisory Board for the Ethics and Public Policy Center, and a director of the Foreign Policy Initiative. He is also one of the three board members of Keep America Safe, a think tank co-founded by Liz Cheney and Debra Burlingame, and serves on the board of the Emergency Committee for Israel and the Susan B. Anthony List.”

Wikipedia states, “Kristol was a leading proponent of the Iraq War.”

Wikipedia also states, “Kristol rejected comparisons to Vietnam and predicted a ‘two month war, not an eight year war’ during a March 28 CSPAN appearance.”
