Dick Cheney stands in front of a huge American flag

Vice President Dick Cheney speaks to a joint meeting of Congress as they gather to hear from Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. This took place at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C., on March 1, 2006. This was six years after Dick Cheney led a vice-presidential selection committee which ended in his own selection as vice president.
