Vice President Joe Biden and former Vice President Dick Cheney are like "night and day," according to Secret Service agents.

Men in Biden's secret service unit once guarded Vice President Cheney, according to a new profile of Biden in GQ. The men wouldn't elaborate on the differences between the two except to note the two veeps were opposites.

Biden also said his work with President Barack Obama is "not like Bush-Cheney, where Bush is sort of a blank slate and Cheney was his imprint."

"Cheney made it hard for the government to function coherently," Biden said.
