THE NATION | IN BRIEF / IOWA

June 26, 2004|From Times Wire Reports

Vice President Dick Cheney said in Sioux City he had no regrets about a bitter exchange with Democratic Sen. Patrick J. Leahy in which the vice president used an obscenity.

During a conversation Tuesday on the floor of the Senate, Cheney told Leahy, "Go ... yourself," according to congressional aides.

Asked in Sioux City during a Midwest campaign swing if he cursed the Vermont senator, Cheney said "probably." But he said "no" when asked whether he regretted it.

"I expressed myself rather forcefully, felt better after I had done it," Cheney said in an interview on cable's Fox News Channel.
