There were jokes and praise as President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney reunited at the Capitol to unveil a bust of Cheney.

They appeared at a ceremony Thursday at the Capitol that was attended by congressional GOP leaders and Vice President Joe Biden.

Bush says his father, President George H.W. Bush, sent his best to "old Iron Ass." That's an apparent reference to revelations in a new biography of the older Bush in which he questioned Cheney's influence over his son and referred to him as an "iron-ass."

There was no sign of tension between the two men on Thursday as they heaped praise on one another. Cheney said he admired Bush without reservation, and Bush thanked Cheney for standing by him for eight years.
