Cheney to Biden: Do What Your President Says

Sunday, 11 Jan 2009 04:46 PM

WASHINGTON – Vice President Dick Cheney is offering some advice to his successor, Joe Biden: make sure you know what the president wants you to do.

Cheney says that will determine what kind of meetings the vice president attends and what kind of policy matters the vice president gets involved in.

How influential is the vice president? Cheney says that depends almost entirely on the president and what he wants.

Cheney says being vice president is nothing like being senator. It's a combination of jobs, including being a surrogate for the president sometimes.

President-elect Barack Obama and longtime Delaware Sen. Biden take office on Jan. 20.

Cheney spoke on CNN's "Late Edition."
