Dick Cheney, at least, claims that he (at least until tomorrow)

is a member of both the Executive Branch (since he is second in

line to the Presidency and his position is outlined in Article II)

and the Legislative Branch (because the VP presides over the Senate

and has a vote in the event of a tie - and the position is also

discussed in Article I). This is certainly not the traditional view

of the position, however.
