Vice President Cheney today acknowledged that he had a bitter exchange on the Senate floor with a senior Democratic senator, in which Cheney uttered a big-time obscenity, but said he had no regrets and that he "felt better after I had done it."
Cheney made the comments in an interview with Fox News, as his language in the exchange with Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (Vt.) attracted considerable attention in talk shows and commentary on television, radio and the Internet.
