Laramie, Wy – Vice President Dick Cheney reports receiving ten gifts of substantial value last year.
The annual disclosure required by law also offered a glimpse into what Cheney and President Bush gave each other for Christmas last year.
As might be appropriate for a second-in-command, Cheney spent 170 dollars more than Bush did on him. Cheney gave Bush a 595 dollar clock that the president keeps on his desk in the Oval Office. Bush gave Cheney a 425 dollar globe on a wooden stand.
Cheney's disclosure also showed he received a 16-hundred dollar painting of a house on the Delaware River, a 400 hand-tooled fly tying set in a carved wooden box, a dozen bottles of wine valued and a 350-dollar hatchet from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation.
