Vice President In Illinois

CHICAGO (AP) -- Vice President Dick Cheney is scheduled to be in Illinois today where he'll speak at the Heritage Foundation's Annual Leadership Conference at the Ritz Carlton in Chicago.

The vice president spoke to W-L-S Radio this morning about the new war czar post that's been in the news.

Cheney says the position is about coordinating a lot of different government agencies involved in the rebuilding of both Iraq and Afghanistan. He says the czar will "ride rough shot if necessary over the bureaucracy to make sure we get the job done."

The vice president predicts they'll have someone in that new post very shortly.
