Senator Lynne Cheney?

Her name has been floated as a replacement for Wyoming Senator Craig Thomas who sadly died from leukemia Monday night. The Politico has the report:

Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, is being floated in Senate GOP leadership circles as a possible replacement for the last Sen. Craig Thomas (R-Wyo.), who died Monday night. Susan Thomas, the late senator’s wife, has also been mentioned by Senate Republicans as a potential choice to take over for her husband, as well as former Justice Department official Tom Sansonetti.

One GOP insider said Lynne Cheney had been in Washington “too long” to be acceptable to the Wyoming GOP, despite her long resume, although that would change if Cheney were to return to Wyoming on a full-time basis.

I hope the Wyoming GOP really considers submitting Lynne Cheney’s name to Governor Freudenthal because she’d make a great senator. She’s stands up for what she believes and doesn’t take any bull – just ask Wolf Blitzer. Her resume is amazing as well: senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute; former chairman of The National Endowment for the Humanities; author of a number of books on history and education; author of several children’s history books; Ph.D in British Literature from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

I say Lynne Cheney for Senate!
