Cheney may consider heart transplant

In an interview Tuesday, former Vice President Dick Cheney said he would consider seeking a heart transplant and maintained that President Obama would be voted out of office next year.

Cheney, 69, has suffered from heart trouble for most of his life. His most recent of his five heart attacks was last February. Last summer, he had a heart pump implanted in his chest to keep blood flowing to his vital organs.

In an interview on the NBC program "Today," Cheney, who is noticeably thinner than during his vice presidency, said the pump was a temporary measure and that a decision on seeking a new heart hasn't been made. "I'll have to make a decision at some point whether or not I want to go for a transplant," he said. "But we haven't addressed that yet."

Asked if he still believes that Obama will be a one-term president, Cheney responded, "I do."
