You lookin' at me?

From Rep. Henry Waxman's site (you know, the chairman of the House committee on oversight and government reform, part of that whole "checks and balances" nonsense)
Vice President Exempts His Office from the Requirements for Protecting Classified Information

The Oversight Committee has learned that over the objections of the National Archives, Vice President Cheney exempted his office from the presidential order that establishes government-wide procedures for safeguarding classified national security information. The Vice President asserts that his office is not an “entity within the executive branch.”
Yeah, who needs those pesky vice-presidential records?

Is that his resignation?

As I've said from the beginning, then he has no "Executive Privilege" and must release the energy policy meeting info. Also, as Rahm Emanuel said, then Congress should stop funding him as a member of the Executive Branch.

If he isn't part of the Executive Branch, does succession now skip right over him to Speaker of the House?
