With new heart, Cheney speaks over an hour in Wyo.Cheney shows no sign of tiring in long Wyo. speech, 1st since heart transplant 3 weeks ago
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) ' Former Vice President Dick Cheney walked without assistance and spoke for an hour and 15 minutes without seeming to tire in his first engagement since getting a new heart three weeks ago.
Cheney even threw in some political plugs amid much reminiscing before the Wyoming Republican Party state convention in Cheyenne on Saturday.
He said presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is going to do a "whale of a job." He said it's never been more important to defeat a sitting president and the Republican Party should unite behind Romney.
The crowd of more than 300 gave Cheney and his daughter, Liz Cheney, a long standing ovation.
Cheney's heart transplant in Virginia on March 24 initially canceled his trip to the convention but he got last-minute medical clearance to go.
