Vice President Cheney Hospitalized

Vice President Dick Cheney was rushed to George Washington University Hospital in Washington overnight after experiencing shortness of breath.

Cheney's spokesman says the Vice-President's doctors found that his EKG was unchanged and insist he was simply retaining fluid from anti-inflammatory medication he has been taking for a foot problem.

They have placed him on a diuretic, and he is expected to return home later today.
