Mary Cheney Couldn't Share Her Thoughts While Working On Campaigns
"Matalin, a Republican pundit and strategist, said the book would give Cheney a chance to give her thoughts on the issue -- something she couldn't do while working on the campaigns."Mary Cheney is writing a memoir with Mary Matalin. Nothing groundbreaking there. But I did find the above quote to be interesting. Matalin, who was a central figure in the Bush/Cheney campaign, said, "something she couldn't do while working on the campaigns." My question would be why couldn't she share her thoughts on issues then and will she be addressing why she couldn't in her book? *UPDATE: One of the above questions has been answered. MTV.com is reporting:
"Republican political strategist Mary Matalin, the head of Simon & Schuster's new conservative publishing subdivision, Threshold, said that Cheney was barred from discussing her personal life while working as a top aide on her father's 2000 and 2004 campaigns, but that the memoir will give her an opportunity to speak her mind." [hat tip:gay_blog.blogspot.com]So I guess we now know why she couldn't. She was barred from discussing her personal life. Now the $500,000 question is, will Mary Cheney address this in her book and give her opinion on how it felt to be openly gay yet barred from speaking about her life. As many times as those grandchildren were trotted before the cameras, I would bet her heterosexual married sibling didn't receive the same treatment in regards to their personal life.
