Liz Cheney's College Paper

Well, one of them, actually. I was a professor of Liz Cheney's at Colorado College in Colorado Springs in the late 1980s. As I cleaned out my closet lately, I encountered a box full of old papers, some of them unclaimed students' essays.

One of these was a 6-page examination of Jefferson and constitutionalism by one Elizabeth Cheney, who is positioning herself to run for higher office.

It's a perfectly good paper, free from any hint of the advocacy for the overthrow of checks on presidential power through which her father wrought such destruction on America and the world.
