"Side-by-side wing chairs"? I'm reminded of the embarrassing point in 2004 in which the President agreed to talk to the 9/11 Commission, but only if Cheney could sit with Bush, and help answer questions, during the discussion.

Old boy in the Beltway hood
Lives in a bunker and it is understood.
He’s there just to take good care of me,
And be the guy who really has the presidency.

TPM again:
The reality is more disconcerting -- Cheney has routinely been the "surrogate President," with Bush putting his signature on the VP's ideas (military commissions, domestic warrantless-searches) because the VP told him it was the right thing to do.

Cheney in Charge
Of our days and our nights
Cheney in Charge
There are no wrongs and no rights

And I sing, I want,
I want Cheney in Charge of me.
