Ooh...that's gonna leave a mark...

Quote of the night that sums up the entire debate from Vice President Cheney:

"Now, in my capacity as vice president, I am the president of Senate, the presiding officer. I'm up in the Senate most Tuesdays when they're in session. The first time I ever met you was when you walked on the stage tonight. "
That's what you call "smackdown."

John "Breck Girl" Edwards fidgeted, hemmed, hawed, and did his level best to try to deflect, defend and otherwise protect the man at the head of the Democratic ticket, John Kerry.

Edwards insisted that he and Senator Kerry were not guilty of the flip-flops that their record strongly indicates, while Cheney went on the offensive, attacking the dismal voting and attendance records of both Kerry and Edwards.

Edwards tried to link Cheney's personal association with defense contrator Halliburton with failed companies like Enron, and the criminal activities of that company's head, Ken Lay. Cheney countered by challenging Edwards' lack of experience on the Hill (Edwards has only been in the Senate since 1999; Cheney has served in four presidential administrations, and has also been a part of the leadership of the US House).

Unlike last week's tie, I've gotta give this one to Cheney.

OUCH!! Smackdown is right.

Did you happen to count the many times John Edwards mentioned Kerry and then said "I'm sorry, I know that's against the rules." But he kept doing it anyway.

I typed out and have the transcript of the first Presidential debate and I can prove for a fact that Bush won that debate; I would have to say the same for this one - Cheney won the debate in spite of and despite "his long resume'" that Johnny boy here kept bringing up.

Great quote. Too bad Chaney has already admitted it is not true. He has met him before.

Cheney win. Facts against accusations. Cheney is just level headed and answers so completely that Edwards just look...light...

bush did not win the debate last week. if anything kerry came off better although he did not land any killer blows. he looked and sounded more presidential while bush seemed like a naughty schoolboy pleading with teacher for another chance.
