The session is scheduled to take place late in the afternoon at the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory. The two men are to be joined by their wives, Jill Biden and Lynne Cheney. In addition to the meeting, the vice president-elect and his wife are scheduled to take a tour of their new digs.

Biden, a 35-year Senate veteran with a deep knowledge of foreign policy, has said he expects to be an “adviser in chief” to President-elect Barack Obama. But his aides have emphasized that he will not run “a shadow operation” — a pointed reference to Cheney, who is known for having a strong hand in shaping Bush administration policy.

Biden also has been critical of Cheney for what he considers excessive secrecy and for holding too much power in the Bush White House.
