And he was born in Nebraska. It's illegal for the President and the Vice President to come form the same state I believe.

Only sort-of from Wyoming ...

Cheney was actually a Texas resident but he decided to move his residence so that he and "W" could be on the same ticket in 2000. It's not like he moved or anything. He just changed the paperwork without changing anything else.

Not a terribly honorable way to approach residence decisions, but I'm not convinced Mr. Cheney is a terribly honorable person.

True enough.

But if I'm not mistaken, it's sort of a "time honored" approach to solving the residency problem in presidental elections, and not just by either side solely.

Cheney grew up in Wyoming and was a Congressman from Wyoming. He didn't just move there to run for VP. His ties with Wyoming are legit.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
