The small murmuring crowd of Secret Service agents and Joe Biden parts to make way for Barack Obama. He knocks on a closed door.
"Dick? It's the President. Unlock the door."
"Come on, I know you're in there, Dick. Unlock the door so we can talk."
A muffled voice is heard through the locked door. "You have to call me Mr. Vice-President. It's the law."
"It's not, Dick. I looked it up. Just open the door."
"I'm not leaving."
"I have a gun."
"I've seen how you shoot, Dick. I'm not scared. You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here."
