It will be good to get back to a Vice President who is not in charge of running the government, especially the “secret” government. It will be good to have a Vice President who is not always located in an “Undisclosed Location.” And it will certainy be good to have a Vice President who knows he is part of the Executive Branch and that’s it.
To take the words directly from Joe Biden:
“The primary role of the vice president of the United States of America is to support the president of the United States of America, give that president his or her best judgment when sought, and as vice president, to preside over the Senate, only in a time when in fact there’s a tie vote. The Constitution is explicit. The only authority the vice president has from the legislative standpoint is the vote, only when there is a tie vote. He has no authority relative to the Congress. The idea he’s part of the Legislative Branch is a bizarre notion invented by Cheney to aggrandize the power of a unitary executive and look where it has gotten us. It has been very dangerous.”
And, frankly, I’ll be glad to see Cheney sink back to his undisclosed location and never come out again.
