    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Elizabeth Cheney, the daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney (news - web sites), will become the second-ranking U.S. diplomat for the Middle East, the State Department said on Monday.

    Cheney, who previously worked in the department's Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs and left to work on her father's 2004 re-election campaign, will become the bureau's principal deputy assistant secretary of state.

    This is the bureau's second ranking position and deputizes for the assistant secretary of state for near eastern affairs, the top U.S. diplomat for the Middle East.

    State Department spokesman Richard Boucher told reporters Cheney would also serve as "coordinator for Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiatives" -- a U.S.-backed idea to try to spread democratic and economic reform in the region.

    "Her duties will include a focus on U.S. bilateral and multilateral efforts to support freedom, democracy and expanded education and economic opportunities in the broader Middle East and North Africa," he said.
  2. Sounds like she is ideal suited for helping her dad get more contracts in the Middle East for Halliburton.

    Not what you know but who.
  3. To bring that old adage up to date, its not who you know or what you know, its what you know about who you know that counts!
  4. Isn't she the lesbian one? (which sorta bears out the post above)
