Julia Meets Dick

To discuss "security issues", apparently. But there's nothing to tell the media. The Fairfax story that carried the photo above didn't even mention Cheney till the last para. Murdoch meeja has only a little more substance:
Her comments came as she met US Vice-President Dick Cheney yesterday for the first time, in his West Wing office. While remaining tight-lipped on the meeting, she noted the discussion centred on national security issues, including Iraq and Afghanistan.

She said she also raised with Mr Cheney in her opening remarks Kevin Rudd's recent proposals on a nuclear non-proliferation commission and new Asia-Pacific unity pact - comments she admitted elicited no further discussion with the Vice-President.
The body language in the photo kinda says it all, doesn't it?
