Cheney family feud

The daughters of former Vice President Dick Cheney are again publicly clashing over the issue of gay marriage.

Liz Cheney is running for a Senate seat in conservative Wyoming. Her younger sister Mary is married to a woman.

The sisters' latest spat on the issue began this weekend.

Liz Cheney appeared on "Fox News Sunday" saying, "I love Mary very much. I love her family very much. This is just an issue in which we disagree."

Mary Cheney responded on Facebook writing "Liz – this isn't just an issue on which we disagree – you're just wrong – and on the wrong side of history."

But is this an embarrassing public airing of dirty laundry or a calculated political move?

Outfront tonight: CNN Political Contributor Ana Navarro and CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger.

    Mary Cheney being gay is an issue that she chose, that doesn't mean the world or I agree with her ways nor anyone that doesn't agree with her ways puts any of us on the wrong side of history. I can only pray for this lady and hope she will understand that human beings are making these rules here on earth, but yet our lord gets the final say about her life and the rest of us here on earth.

    "What we have before us is a moral issue. The heart of the question is whether all Americans are to be afforded equal rights & equal opportunities. They have a right to expect that the law will be fair... And this is a matter which concerns this country & what it stands for." (JFK, 1963)

      JFK voted against the 1957 Civil Rights Act. Avoid quotes from the privileged and rich. Now MLK is a great man.
