Mary Cheney with David Letterman: Just read my book

From Letterman's interview with Mary Cheney last night, we definitely learn something new that we didn't before. She makes all her views known in her book. Just buy it. You'll learn that she almost quit the campaign for heaven's sake. I understand that it was her father running for office again, but since she wrote a book about her experiences and personal views on relevant social issues-it's fair to ask the questions Letterman did. He seemed a little frustrated at times. (rough transcript)

On Gay rights: Mary hopes that all Americans would be engaged in these issues and David explained:

David: Most Americans are engaged and are trying to get the attention of the administration who can actually do something about it. Who seemingly perhaps are not engaged. Is that a fair assessment or am I being nuts here?

Mary: I think you might be being nuts...

David tried to ellicit a definitive response about how she felt about the Republicans demonizing gays to advance their agenda and win the '04 election, but all one has to do is read her book.

David: Did you talk to your father about it?

Mary: We had many conversations about different issues.


Mary: Well, actually I talk about it in the book...

David: Maybe that's the point. Maybe, I'm wondering if people would rather you had talked about it during the campaign as opposed to after the campaigns waiting to put it in a book. Would it have been more effective to talk about it then?

Mary: I honestly don't think it would have...

David: Do they resent you taking the opportunity to make money selling books now, where as before there was something larger to have accomplished?

Mary: I am very hesitant to speak on behalf of anybody. I'm sure there are people who feel that way and I know there are other people who don't feel that way...

Will she speak out against the new "Gay marriage ban" that the Republicans passed out of committee behind closed doors this week if she is so appalled? I don't think she had time to address this in her book though.
