247. Here's Cheney's bio
Richard Bruce Cheney (born January 30, 1941) is an American politician and businessman affiliated with the U.S. Republican Party. He is currently serving as the 46th Vice President of the United States under George W. Bush.

"Dick" Cheney was born in Lincoln, Nebraska. He grew up in Casper, Wyoming, and earned his bachelor's and master's of arts degrees from the University of Wyoming. He is married to his highschool sweetheart Lynne Cheney, an author and college teacher. They have grown daughters, Elizabeth and Mary, and three granddaughters.

He began serving the Nixon administration in 1969, serving in a number of positions at the Cost of Living Council, at the Office of Economic Opportunity, and within the White House. Under President Gerald Ford, Cheney became Assistant to the President and White House Chief of Staff.

In 1977 he was elected to represent Wyoming in the United States House of Representatives, and was re-elected five times. He was Chairman of the Republican Policy Committee from 1981 to 1987. He was elected Chairman of the House Republican Conference in 1987 and elected House Minority Whip in 1988.

Brainyencyclopedia is pretty good. They mentioned Cheney's PNAC involvement. And did you see Kissinger's quote about Rumsfeld?

"Donald Rumsfeld is the most ruthless man I have ever met".
