No political dustups for Cheney on 'The View'

NEW YORK (AP) — The rough, tough ladies of "The View"? No problem for former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Cheney was on the daytime show Tuesday promoting his new memoir, "In My Time," and there were no fireworks. "The View" hosts, particularly Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar, are often combative with guests they disagree with politically.

All Goldberg wondered was where Cheney had been during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Behar asked if the Iraq and Afghanistan wars would have gone differently if it wasn't an all-volunteer army, and Cheney said that "you have to deal with the world the way you find it."

Cheney, who showed off the battery to his implanted heart pump, said he hadn't decided whether he wants a transplant.
