By Paul Bedard, Washington Whispers
For Liz Cheney, it's the project of a lifetime: working with her dad, former Vice President Dick Cheney, on his still-untitled bio being published by Simon & Schuster's Threshold Editions. She gave us some insight on what the story she's helping to research and write will cover. "It's going to be a political memoir of unparalleled interest and significance," she promised us. "His career has spanned four decades, service at the highest levels of Congress, in the White House, at the Pentagon, and in the private sector." The stories will stretch from his being kicked out of Yale, twice, to stringing power lines across the West, through his days as former President George H. W. Bush's defense secretary and eventually W's veep. "He has seen and been part of most of the key policy debates and some of the most momentous events since the early 1970s. It's a great story and—on a personal note—really special for me to have the chance to work on it with him," says Liz. "It's just a wonderful project, and he's a wonderful dad and great American."
