Dick Cheney Is Just An Average Joe ... Drivin' a Lexus

EXCLUSIVE

Dick Cheney's life is radically different from his days as Vice President ... for starters he's behind the wheel of his own car, unable to get through a police barricade protecting someone who's currently important.

We got the former Veep in D.C.'s Dupont Circle, where he was trying to pick someone up at a nearby medical facility.

BTW ... he's driving a Lexus ... decidedly un-American.
