VP Dick Cheney taken to hospital and then released

Vice President Dick Cheney has been released from a Washington D.C. hospital. He was taken to George Washington University Hospital in the nation's capital early today, after experiencing shortness of breath.

Spokeswoman Lea Anne McBride says doctors determined Cheney was retaining fluid because of medication he's been taking for a foot problem. That foot ailment forced him to use a cane on Friday.

Cheney has a history of heart problems and has a pacemaker in his chest.
