Dick Cheney Memoir Reveals Secret Resignation Letter

In his new memoir, In My Time, former Vice President Dick Cheney talks about a secret letter of resignation that he wrote only two months into office. Worried about his health, he wrote the letter in March 2001 and locked in a safe.

The Huffington Post has more: “I did it because I was concerned that — for a couple of reasons … One was my own health situation. The possibility that I might have a heart attack or a stroke that would be incapacitating. And, there is no mechanism for getting rid of a vice-president who can’t function.’”

Below we’ve linked to other news stories exploring this highly anticipated memoir. The book comes out on Tuesday from Simon & Schuster. The hardcover sells for $19.25 on Amazon and the eBook edition sells for $16.99.
