Hillary Clinton would not be good president: Cheney

US Vice President Dick Cheney said on Wednesday that Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton will not win the White House in 2008 and would not make a good president if she does.
Cheney, who in October had called Hillary Clinton a “formidable candidate” who “could win” the race to replace US President George W. Bush, told CNN television “I don’t” think she would make a good leader.
Asked why, Cheney replied: “Because she’s a Democrat. I don’t agree with her philosophically and from a policy standpoint.”
Asked whether she would be president, the vice president replied: “I don’t,” but declined to predict the winner of the 2008, except to remind his questioner that he was not running and declare: “It won’t be me.”
Clinton announced Saturday that she was looking to become the first woman US president.
