GOP watch: Cheney's 'mild heart attack'

Former Vice President Dick Cheney suffered a "mild heart attack," his office confirms.

"Lab testing revealed evidence of a mild heart attack," a statement from his office reads. "He underwent a stress test and a heart catheterization. He is feeling good and is expected to be discharged in the next day or two."

NBC's Pete Williams reports, according to a family member, Cheney spoke yesterday afternoon with former President George W. Bush and Vice President Biden. After his procedure, he was "feeling good" and watched NBC's Olympics coverage in his hospital room last night, according to the family member.

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels -- considered by some to be a possible Republican presidential candidate in 2012 or beyond -- said today that he doesn't plan to run in 2012 and is content to "get things done" in his home state.  "I don't plan to do it, I don't expect to do it, I really don't want to do it," Daniels said, neglecting to add, however, a Sherman-esque statement that he will not run.

*** UPDATE *** Cheney was released from the hospital this morning. His office released this statement: "Former Vice President Cheney is feeling good this morning and was discharged from GWU Hospital. He will resume his normal schedule shortly."

"Art will imitate life when Bristol Palin, teen mom and daughter of former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, makes her acting debut on ABC Family's 'The Secret Life of the American Teenager,'" the New York Daily News reports. "The series focuses on teenage issues, most notably teen pregnancy. Palin, 19, will be playing herself, the network announced Tuesday."
