Lou DuBose and Jake Bernstein talked about their book, Vice: Dick Cheney and the Hijacking of the American Presidency, published by Random House. In this depiction of Vice President Cheney’s “shadow presidency,” the co-authors examined Vice President Cheney’s medical condition, his involvement in foreign policy, and his relationship with the Halliburton corporation. They argued that Vice President Cheney has been successful in his career-long fight to re-establish executive power. They also talked about the vice president’s work in both the Ford and Nixon administrations and his efforts to restore presidential power after the Watergate scandal. After their presentation they responded to audience members' questions. close
