Former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney met for coffee in their first reunion since President Barack Obama's inauguration more than a year ago.
Bush and Cheney met Thursday in the Washington area, Cheney's office said in a statement, declining to give the location. ABC News aired video of Bush shaking Cheney's hand in front of Cheney's Virginia home.
The meeting came the day after Cheney left a Washington hospital, where he was treated after a mild heart attack.
Bush has kept out of the spotlight since leaving office. Bush took Obama up on the president's request in January to work with former President Bill Clinton to raise money to help Haiti recover from a devastating earthquake.
Cheney, in contrast, has continued to be a prominent voice in the Republican Party and an outspoken Obama critic.
