== Life and Family ==
Richard 'Dick' Cheney was born in Lincoln, Nebraska. After dropping out of Yale College, he took a BA and an MA in Political Science from the University of Wyoming. He was twice arrested for DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) in his early 20's. He did graduate work in political science at the University of Wisconsin, where in 1964 he met [[Lynne Cheney]], who was finishing her Ph.D. in literature. Displaying the moral and physical cowardice that conservatives are noted for, Cheney used his college deferment to avoid the draft during the Vietnam conflict, stating that he had other priorities. The Cheneys have two daughters; Elizabeth and Mary.
