Who does Cheney serve?

On March 19, Vice president Dick Cheney appeared on the television program “Face the Nation.” During that interview he stated three times that his primary job is to “serve the president.” Is this true?

I thought the vice-president served We the People and the U.S. Constitution, and then perhaps secondly, the president. I would appreciate clarification on this point.
