Vice President Dick Cheney has arrived at the U.S. Capitol in a wheelchair for the inauguration of Barack Obama. Cheney was wheeled out behind President George W. Bush to take his place alongside dignitaries that included former Vice Presidents Al Gore, Dan Quayle and Walter Mondale.

The White House says Cheney pulled a muscle in his back while moving boxes. He and his wife are moving into a new home outside Washington in McLean, Va. His doctor recommended that he use a wheelchair for the next couple of days.
