The sole U.S. Representative from Colorado’s neighbor to the north has been the center of attention for political wonks over the past week. Rep. Liz Cheney’s refusal to kowtow to former President Donald Trump and his ludicrous claims of election fraud again threatens her political career.
The scion of a first family in Wyoming, and the Republican Party, Cheney is anything but a political neophyte. She knows exactly what she is doing.
Cheney is setting herself up to do one of two things: lead a post-Trump GOP back from the brink of collapse or walk away from the crumbling edifice with her dignity intact. She obviously wants nothing to do with a party so hellbent on burning itself to the ground.
Good for Cheney.
