The Drudge Report has some interesting quotes from the Vice-Presidential daughter's new book:
In her new memoir, NOW IT'S MY TURN (Simon & Schuster/Threshold Editions, 2006), Mary Cheney writes that when she told her parents she was gay, the first words out of her father’s mouth "were exactly the ones that I wanted to hear: 'You're my daughter, and I love you, and I just want you to be happy.'"I wonder how many people would be willing to give the Cheneys credit for their reaction.
VANITY FAIR editor Todd Purdum reports that Mary Cheney tells her story in a voice very much like her father's, and that she came out to her parents when she was a junior in high school, on a day when, after breaking up with her first girlfriend, she skipped school, ran a red light, and crashed the family car. Cheney writes that her mother hugged her, but then burst into tears, worried that she would face a life of pain and prejudice.
