Wash Post Profiles Influential Legislator:
Today's Washington Post kicks off a series on Senate President Dick Cheney, who apparently has also exercised some influence in recent years within the Executive Branch. The first installment is here.

  UPDATE: The Washington Post article really is a must-read, although on reading it closely I realize that the title of my post is inaccurate. According to the Post article, Cheney's counsel believes that the Vice-Presidency is neither in the executive branch nor in the legisltive branch. Last I checked, the federal government only had three branches, so by process of elimination the Office of the Vice President must be in the judicial branch.
