"After Cheney, vice presidential house is clearer on Google Earth"
Dick Cheney may not have lived in an undisclosed location while he was vice
president, but it was all but impossible to see it on Google Earth.
Once obscured by pixelation, Google Earth's aerial image of the vice
presidential residence on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory in
Washington is now nearly as clear as its view of the White House.
"More change! Joe Biden?s house is clear on Google Earth"
Undisclosed location no more.
Vice President Joe Biden?s home is now open to the public.
"Some Cheney-Biden differences are visibly clear"

The new staff at the White House press office is providing "guidance" in the

The veil of secrecy has been lifted from the official residence of the vice
president on Google Maps and Google Earth, Owen Thomas noted on Valleywag.
The satellite's-eye view was obscured when former VP Dick Cheney resided at One
Observatory Circle, though the White House could be seen clearly. But the image
of the Veep's home is unaltered now.
The real-clear change took place Jan. 18, as Cheney was on his way out and Vice
President Joe Biden was on his way in.
