VP's Wife Promotes New Book, Old Husband

Lynne Cheney’s Evolved On Gay Rights

Lynne Cheney took to the boob tube yesterday to promote her new book, Blue Skies, No Fences.

In addition to defending her husband, calling Vice President Dick Cheney a “terrific guy”, the 66-year old second lady discusses how times have changed. For example, her generation didn’t always welcome the homos, “[The times] were hard on kids who were gay”. No thanks to the Republican party, of course.

Since birthing lesbian daughter Mary, Lynne says she – and society- have “evolved”:

I think the society has evolved. I’ve evolved in my way of thinking, but I think the whole society has evolved. You know, my mother had a rule which was people are just people.

Speaking of people, Cheney’s interviewer, Rita Braver, happens to be married to a lawyer who helped Cheney get published.
