For the last few weeks, Liz Cheney, daughter of the former vice president, has been an omnipresent force in the news. For example, she made 12 appearances in the 10 days between May 12 and May 22, prompting many to wonder whether she jumpstarting her own political career. In an interview with Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren that aired last night, Dick Cheney said he’d love to see his daughter follow in his footsteps:

VAN SUSTEREN: Think we’re going to see a lot of Liz Cheney in the next couple years? … It sounds like she’s getting involved in a lot lately.

CHENEY: Well, I would — you know, I’m, of course, a proud father, but I’d love to see her run for office some day. I think she’s got a lot to offer. And it’s been a great career for me. And if she has the interest, and I think she does, then I would like to see her to embark upon a career in politics.

Watch it:

Reacting to unnamed Republicans who are pushing Liz Cheney to run for office, Steve Benen wrote, “I can’t help but find all of this rather ridiculous. For one thing, Liz Cheney’s penchant for dishonesty rivals that of her father’s. For another, the ‘Cheney’ name is not exactly a strong political ‘brand’ right now.”
