VP's Daughter Joins Thompson Team

NewsMax is reporting, and I heard it this morning on Fox, that Liz Cheney has joined Fred D. Thompson's Exploratory Committee as a foreign policy advisor.

According to the Weekly Standard, Elizabeth Cheney, a former top official in the State Department's Near East and South Asia department, will be joined by:
Mark Esper, national security adviser to former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist.
Joel Shin, a top policy staffer for the Bush-Cheney 2000 presidential campaign.

Cheney also has worked at the World Bank and as a U.S. AID officer in Poland and Hungary.
She, Esper, Shin -- all considered hawks -- will give Thompson foreign policy advice. The informal group will hash out current foreign policy issues and make recommendations.
