Cheney Encourages Clinton to Run

Former Vice President Dick Cheney told ABC News that "it's not a bad idea" if Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were to challenge President Obama in a Democratic primary.

He called her a "pretty formidable individual."

Said Cheney: "I think she's probably the most competent person they've got in their -- in their cabinet. And, frankly, I thought she was gonna win the nomination last time around. Maybe if -- the Obama record is bad enough -- and these days it's not very good, given the shape of the economy maybe there will be enough ferment -- in the Democratic Party so that there will be a primary on their side."
