Cheney was hospitalized Monday with chest pains — the latest in several trips to the hospital in what has been a long, protracted battle with heart disease.
Lab tests at George Washington University Hospital revealed Tuesday Cheney had, indeed, suffered a heart attack — his fifth since he was 37.
“The whole family has been working with heart disease for decades,” political consultant Mary Matalin told The Associated Press. “They are vigilant and attuned to treatment.”
Matalin said the 69-year-old Cheney “knows how to live” with his heart condition.
