Can Biden Undo Cheney?

Can Joe Biden do more with less? The vice president-elect, who has never before set foot in the vice president’s office, wants to “restore the balance” and pare back some of his predecessor’s excesses but without relegating himself to irrelevancy. “I want to be the last guy in the room on every important decision,” he tells The New York Times in his first interview with a paper outside of Delaware. “I know as much or more than Cheney,” he said. “I’m the most experienced vice president since anybody.”
