By the second rally of his weekend campaign swing, Vice President Dick Cheney seemed to be getting the hang of it, delivering an entire line of his standard stump speech looking at the audience instead of the podium as he usually does.

"You guys want to hear this speech or not?" he asked, not angrily but not quite kidding.
