Question of the Day
Cheney expected at home this week
Former Vice President Dick Cheney is out of intensive care but still in the hospital more than five weeks after being admitted for his latest heart problems, his daughter said Sunday.
Last month, doctors implanted a pump that improves heart function in the 69-year-old Mr. Cheney at a hospital in Fairfax.
“He is still in the hospital, but he’s doing well,” daughter Liz Cheney told “Fox News Sunday.”
“He’s out of the intensive-care unit and, hopefully, will be home later this week,” she said. “He’s looking at fly-fishing and hunting dates for later on this year, so we’re very hopeful.”
After the operation in early July to install a heart pump called a Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD), Mr. Cheney issued a statement saying it had gone “very well.”
Obama enjoys day of hoops
Mr. Obama, his daughter Sasha and a friend of Sasha’s whom the White House did not identify had courtside seats for a women’s basketball game between the Mystics and the Tulsa Shock at the Verizon Center in downtown Washington.
The crowd at the arena roared when the scoreboard showed the president’s arrival. Mr. Obama chatted during the game with Mystics owner Ted Leonsis and team President Sheila Johnson. Mr. Obama and his party left the arena a few minutes before the end of the game, which the Mystics won, 87-62.
Earlier Sunday, Mr. Obama played basketball against an Army team at Fort McNair in the District of Columbia.
