What is a vice president good for?
After 7.5 yrs with Dick Cheney as VP, I kind of forget what is the role of the vice president and his/her responsibilities. What is the vice president job again? From what I've seen from Dick, it seems like he does nothing but just give huge contracts to his oil buddies.
