CNN is reporting that Vice President Cheney has been treated for blood clot in his leg after experiencing discomfort in his calf. More info as it becomes available.

Update: From CNN.

Doctors found a blood clot in Vice President Dick Cheney’s left leg Monday, Cheney’s office said.

The vice president was given blood-thinning medication, which he will need to take for several months, and allowed to return to work.

Looks like it was nothing serious. For a guy who has had four heart attacks since 1978, this is probably like a little indigestion.
