The L.A. Times:
Former Vice President Dick Cheney made a surprise appearance this afternoon at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference gathering in Washington after a speech by his daughter, Liz Cheney. And a surprise proclamation.
He was greeted by cheers and chants of “Run, Cheney, Run!”
To which Cheney responded: “A welcome like that almost makes me want to run for office—but I am not going to do it.”
