Citizen Crain has a point. Mary Cheney wants to have it both ways. Write a book about her life, but don't let people ask about anything not in the book. Support your father's political ambitions, but not answer questions about how it affects your own life. But real life isn't like that. If you talk and write about your personal life, your personal life is fair game for journalists. If you support your father's viewpoints by campaigning for him, then your life and contradictions are up for review. You can't have it both ways - that's why Mary Cheney, as admirable as she is in many ways, is a hypocrite.
