Not really. Cheney was in the White House--a great big target in a city that had already seen one landmark attacked. There was a bunker with command
and control capabilities available, so they put him in it.
Bush was in a school. A small, unimposing building that no one even knew about until his travel plans were announced. He was pretty safe there,

seem to think would have been the rational response to the situation.
