It can't be easy being Dick Cheney, V.P.O.T.U.S. (Vice President Of The United States), second in command of the world's most powerful nation, constantly under pressure to perform. How he must long to escape, to do a Vladimir Putin and take just the one photographer on a macho foray into the countryside.
Of course, sometimes he gets the chance to do just that. Fly fishing for a few days with some trusted aides and colleagues. Only in the picture here, which you'll also find on his official website, look closely and you'll see in the reflection of his glasses exactly the sort of aide-de-camp/second lady our Dick likes to take with him. No wonder he's smiling.
Thank you Gary!
