    Dick Cheney receives heart transplant

    Dick Cheney receives heart transplant - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney received a heart transplant on Saturday, his office announced. A statement from the former vice president's office said the 71 year old is now recovering in the intensive care unit of Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va., outside Washington.
    Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Vice President Cheney. I disagree with him on almost every issue, but I must say, his sense of humor works for me. Being opposed on politics does not mean we should demonize nor hate those we disagree with.

    Re: Dick Cheney receives heart transplant

    Wait, so there is actually proof that he had a heart?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I don't really think there is such a thing as speedy recover to a heart transplant. There are just so many issues you have to deal with afterwards.
    Rejection of new tissue is the main one.
    Have known a few transplants and some have done well but it is not a cakewalk.

    Re: Dick Cheney receives heart transplant

    well seeing his heart record i would give him 2 years before problems occur.

    the good news is they have new electric hearts that work better than real ones,the bad news if his battery runs out or he accidentally unplugs himself on the way to the kitchen---------well best not to think about it.

    I hope the Vice President recovers and is once again active.

    Well, there is now, granted, it's somebody else's.
