When Cheney Met Edwards


Cheney never met Edwards in the Senate? Or before tonight? Maybe he has the beginnings of dementia.:

January 08, 2003
WASHINGTON -- Republican Elizabeth Dole, sworn in as North Carolina's newest senator Tuesday, pledged to work with lawmakers of both parties to strengthen national defense, boost the economy, reform health care and address farming issues crucial to North Carolinians. Dole had her grandmother's Bible as she was sworn in on the Senate floor. She raised her right hand and took the oath administered by Vice President Dick Cheney, the Senate president.

Per Senate tradition, Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., escorted her. Her husband, former Senate majority leader and GOP presidential candidate Bob Dole, also was by her side.

Here'sanother time they met-- same picture as above but larger of the two together:
