Biff-it looks to me like Cheney and you have a different take on Edwards comments. Here's a direct quote:

"Ms. Ifill Mr. Vice President, you have 90 seconds.

Mr. Cheney Well, Gwen, let me simply thank the senator for the kind words he said about my family and our daughter. I appreciate that very much."

The right wing of the Republicans has chosen to make gay marriage an issue. Edwards didn't broach the subject of Cheney's daughter with any venom or judgement. Or did I miss something. I might have been watching the proceedings at Yankee Stadium.

I spoke this morning with an old friend who has been a conservative Repub for the 30 years that I've known him. His take on the debate was one of disappointment. He thought that Cheney had perhaps stopped the perceived "bleeding" since the 1st debate, but had failed to go for the Kerry/Edwards jugular. Direct quote-"if he (Cheney) was supposed to be the attack dog-he wimped out. With all of his experience he should have been able to not only hold Edwards at bay-he should have slaughtered him".

Maybe his heart trouble doesn't allow him to get too excited.
