"If President Bush felt he had a better chance to win with someone else as his running mate, I wanted to make sure he felt free to make the change," Cheney wrote. In a taped interview that aired Monday night on NBC's Dateline, Cheney described the book as his “one chance to write your version of events, your history, your story.” He said he did not set out to embarrass former President George W.

Those who blamed him for the second Iraq War liked to call him “heartless.” Well, Dick Cheney does have a heart. The first one nearly killed him a few times - he's had five heart attacks. At one point in 2010 his heart actually stopped beating, with various iterations of the headline “Cheney Has No Pulse” gracing newspapers and the Internet.
