WASHINGTON, Feb. 15 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The following is a transcript of an interview of Vice President Dick Cheney by Brit Hume of Fox News:
Vice President's Ceremonial Office
Eisenhower Executive Office Building
2:01 P.M. EST
Q: Mr. Vice President, how is Mr. Whittington?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, the good news is he's doing very well today. I talked to him yesterday after they discovered the heart problem, but it appears now to have been pretty well resolved and the reporting today is very good.
Q: How did you feel when you heard about that?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, it's a great relief. But I won't be, obviously, totally at ease until he's home. He's going to be in the hospital, apparently, for a few more days, and the problem, obviously, is that there's always the possibility of complications in somebody who is 78-79 years old. But he's a great man, he's in great shape, good friend, and our thoughts and prayers go out to he and his family.
Q: How long have you known him?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: I first met him in Vale, Colorado, when I worked for Gerry Ford about 30 years ago, and it was the first time I'd ever hunted with him.
Q: Would you describe him as a close friend, friendly acquaintance, what --
THE VICE PRESIDENT: No, an acquaintance.
Q: Tell me what happened?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, basically, we were hunting quail late in the day --
Q: Describe the setting.

Thanks for posting the transcrip...I had to miss Brit's interview and this helps put it together for me.
It is farther away from Denber than Derrango is.
Thanks for posting this because all Im getting are the sound bites accompanied by spin.
Thanks for adding the full context
Here's the entire video of the interview:
THE VICE PRESIDENT: There is an executive order to that effect.
Q: There is.
THE VICE PRESIDENT: Yes.
That will slow the RATS down a bit.
Near Beamboat? Or Furplay?
Few of those who ARE aware of the HIPAA law realize its origins. This is the one part of the Hillary Clinton health care plan that eventually passed! The law is what you'd expect, considering the source.
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off my FoxFan list. *Warning: This can be a high-volume ping list at times.
Thanks for the ping!
The hospital announced today that they are checking with Whittington and his family before each press conference to see just what they can and cannot say about his condition.
Hey! The guy was going to die anyway and I had a perfect shot...
These idiot cartoonist are pissing me off.
