Dick Cheney’s Daughter, Mary, is Married!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Love trumps politics. This morning, former veep Dick Cheney’s daughter, Mary, married her partner of 20 years, Heather Poe in Washington, D.C. Mary updated her Facebook friends this afternoon: “Very happy to announce that as of this morning, Heather and I are legally married (at least in DC). 20 years to the day after our first date.”

Dick and Lynne Cheney also issued a statement of their own: “We are delighted that they were able to take advantage of the opportunity to have that relationship recognized. Mary and Heather and their children are very important and much loved members of our family and we wish them every happiness.” Though he’s a conservative Republican, the former vice president has publicly supported marriage equality since 2009 — even lobbying for Maryland Republicans to legalize gay marriage earlier this year.

And even the tense presidential campaign paused for a moment in honor of the happy occasion. People.com reports that some prominent members of both the Mitt Romney campaign and George W. Bush’s administration “liked” and commented on Mary’s status update.

Congrats, Mary and Heather!
