Dick Cheney in Chicago for Book Chat

Former Vice President Dick Cheney is due in Chicago for a chat on his new autobiography.

The Union League Club of Chicago's author's group is hosting the event Monday downtown. It includes questions from the audience.

The book, "In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir," was a collaboration with his daughter, Liz Cheney.

The autobiography has revived debate over the rationale to attack Iraq in 2003 and the cost in American lives and dollars.

Cheney has said that the book would create waves in Washington. It defends the war and offers a harsh criticism of two secretaries of state, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, and one defense secretary, Robert Gates.

He also offered advice for then-incoming chief of staff Rahm Emanuel: "Whatever you do, make sure you’ve got the vice president under control."

Cheney apparently passed along the friendly tidbit during a meeting hosted by then-chief of staff Josh Bolten during the Bush administration's last weeks in office.
