    He had a known heart condition and likely had been on the list for countless years - living with a condition. . . he could have lived without a transplant for another 10 or 20 for all we know. . . after living for 10 or 20 already.

    I am very disappointed in you young lady.

    I'm not: someone else who was younger or had more going for their life was just denied a heart - if he was reasonable he should have said 'no - I'm too old.' You won't see me robbing someone else of such a wonderful thing when I'm waning in my later years.

    Re: Dick Cheney receives heart transplant

    if other than his heart problems, Cheney is in fine healthy condiction, then I have no problem with him getting this heart.

    however, if he or any other elderly person has other chronic serious health issues, then I would prefer the heart go to a younger and/or healthier person.

    its called triage. those who have a better channce of living longer & healthier lives get medical preference.

    Who was denied the heart? Since you seem to know exactly how the situatiuon went down, who was it who could have gotten a heart but did not, and why did it go to Cheney?

    Oh come on you two - we all know that transplants are on a list - if the first person can't be reached it goes to the next person.

    Evidently I think age should be a factor - 71 and the chances of recovery and living another 20 years? I'm just being realistic, here.

    So you do not know if Cheney was not the most logical recipient that could be reached and could make it in time. Your arguments are in fact based on guesses and a lack of knowledge of the situation.

    Actually I go to a heart transplant center as a patient. And I totally disagree with you. For instance it could have been a sixty year old heart. I don't particulary want a 60 year old heart.
