Vice President's Daughter to Leave State Dept.
Elizabeth Cheney, leader of the administration's Middle East democracy initiative, will leave her State Department job next month to join the Bush-Cheney reelection campaign.

Cheney, daughter of Vice President Cheney, said yesterday that she expects to join a Washington think tank and continue to work on Middle East issues in the private sector while devoting most of her time to politics.

"I will be having conversations with folks in the campaign once I've left," said Cheney, who also worked in the 2000 campaign. "The most important factor for our continued success is the reelection of the president, and I want to do everything I can to help out in that effort."

As a deputy assistant secretary in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, Cheney was given control of the Middle East Partnership Initiative, an evolving project designed to foster increased democracy and economic progress in a troubled region.

3. Traitor ?
is this the same daughter who is homosexual ?? I already view your avg Repuke as a misogynist, but to be female and a repuke (and gay on top of that). . .

Supporting an administration that's actions involve efforts to reduce rights of people of your sexual orientation; no marriage, no civil unions, no government jobs, etc. I can understand a certain morbid self-loathing that might make you feel you deserve this (having had this beaten in by many a bible-thumper). But to ACTIVELY SEEK IT ????? AND FOIST IT UPON OTHERS ????

I'm sure people like this also believe the Jews got what they "deserved and secretly desired" in Nazi Germany, and are willing to join their numbers.

6. oops
Fascist-Lite, my mistake.

I get incensed b/c my brother is gay, and I love him very much. Which just gives me something in common with THIS daughter, the only difference is I'D NEVER SELL OUT A LOVED ONE.

under Shulsky and Luti. If Kokal worked in this group, then, as far as I'm concerned, this was no suicide. With the heat on from the Senate Intelligence committee about pre-war intelligence, Kokal's death stinks to high heaven!

C) Elizabeth Cheney, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs

(1) Daughter of the Vice President Dick Cheney.
