Cheney on the Run

Just two days before a scheduled visit from former Vice President Dick Cheney, the Miller Center at the University of Virginia announced on Monday that Cheney would be postponing his visit to talk about his new book, “In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir.” Originally, Cheney had been scheduled to visit with his daughter, Liz Cheney, who co-authored the book with her father, but that later became a solo visit from the former VP.

According to Miller Center Director of Communications Kristy Schantz, Cheney postponed his visit for "personal reasons" and plans to reschedule sometime early next year. Schantz said the last minute cancelation [sic] had nothing to do with a planned protest outside the Miller Center, or a request from local anti-war activist David Swanson to local government and police officials that Cheney be arrested for "conspiracy to torture."
