(Newser) – Joe Biden and wife Jill paid a pleasant social call this evening on the man Biden once called the "most dangerous vice president" in the nation's history. Dick Cheney and wife Lynne invited the Bidens for a meeting and a tour of the VP's official residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, AFP reports. "It was a good visit," said a Cheney spokeswoman, and a Biden spokeswoman agreed.

No word on whether they discussed this zinger launched by Biden at the party convention: "For every American who is trying to do the right thing, for all those people in government who are honoring their pledge to uphold the law and respect our Constitution, no longer will the eight most dreaded words in the English language be: 'The vice president's office is on the phone.'"
