Noticeably Thinner Cheney Attends Bush Center Groundbreaking

A spokesman for former Vice President Dick Cheney says his thin appearance at the groundbreaking for the George W. Bush Presidential Center was a result of a long hospital stay following heart surgery over the summer.
Spokesman Peter Long said Tuesday that Cheney was hoping to keep the weight off for his health after spending several weeks in the hospital.
Cheney also used a cane during his appearance at the groundbreaking, though he walked to the podium without it.
Long says Cheney used the cane because of a bad knee from playing high school football that acts up occasionally.
Cheney was one of many former administration officials that came to Dallas for the groundbreaking for the Bush center, which will include a library and a policy institute.
