Vice President Dick Cheney shares a lighthearted moment with his family, including daughter Elizabeth and her children, following a tough-talking speech in which he bashed Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. John Kerry for displaying a "habit of indecision." Cheney's wife, Lynne, was also onstage, but daughter Mary, whom Cheney publicly admitted was gay last week, watched the speech with her partner from a VIP box in the Garden.
