The Greatest Republican Idea In The History of the World

From ABC's This Week with George Stephanopolis:

"STEPHANOPOULOS: One final question for each of you, who is the most promising Republican candidate not in the race yet? […] 

BILL KRISTOL: If they get to nominate Hillary Clinton, why don't we get to nominate Dick Cheney..."

Bill, please, please, be our guest!  There is no one in the Democratic party that would have any problem at all with your nominating Dick Cheney to run for President. He is the very apotheosis of what it means to be a Republican, in every way. And what a record, both in economics and foreign policy.  And what a great campaigner, what with him being such a likeable guy.  Let's all see how many people in this country want that.  Really, please go for it.  Please!
I mean, everyone wants to look at that for the next eight years.

Cheney would be great. He already has 8 years of experience and that went so well for us.

Eight years of experience as both the President and vice President at the same time. This time around he could pick himself for Vice President and no one would be surprised at all.

Kristol may as well have suggested Montgomery Burns from The Simpsons.

Oh wait, he kind of did...
