Cheney is a rather unusual case in that he has a great deal of influence over how policy is set in the Bush administration. He probably had more
than any other VP in history. There are no guarantees that the same will be true of Palin, Biden, or any other future VP. Technically, they have
only one role in government and that's the Senate tiebreaker.
I doubt we'll see too many more like Cheney. Bush was a lame duck from the beginning, making room for Cheney to orchestrate the things he wanted to
orchestrate without too much problem.
If McCain became President I think Palin would probably be brushed off to the side, and it seems like Obama and Biden are at least friendly together
so they might help each other out, especially with Biden's experience.
Who knows though, faces change once they get the power. I am farily confident though that Palin isn't anything more than a way to try and bring in
votes that Obama is lacking on the Clinton front. They'd probably just lock her in a room somewhere if McCain won haha.
