Political Family Feuds: More Interesting Than Most

“Liz — this isn’t just an issue on which we disagree you’re just wrong — and on the wrong side of history.”

This is a passionate statement to proclaim to someone, especially over Facebook. To make matters more interesting, this comment was made by Mary Cheney, younger sister of Liz Cheney, “who is running in the GOP primary for U.S. Senate in Wyoming”.

I can only imagine how difficult it is for a family to not see eye-to-eye on this topic, especially the Cheney family.

This also is fascinating when looking at this tension from a political point of view. Is there any way with Liz’s younger sister being gay, and married, that she could become tolerant of gay marriage herself?

 

It’s certainly a tough question to ask, and only time will truly tell.

 

This is Mary Cheney and her partner, Heather Poe.

I would like to make a special note that Dick Cheney endorsed gay marriage in 2009.
