Dick Cheney becomes president Saturday
It could be one of the scariest moments in United States history. On Saturday, President George Bush delegated the highest power in the land to his Vice President Dick Cheney.
Bush is scheduled to undergo a routine colonoscopy on Saturday at the Camp David presidential retreat.
During the time when Bush is under anesthesia, Dick has the power.
This is only the third time in history when a president has passed his authority over to the Vice President.
