Yes CHENEY KICKED HIS BUTT!
What is so funny is the way the dims are flooding the polls saying THE BRECK GIRL WON!
Anybody who watched this couldn't possibly come away with that idea. I never realized until tonight just HOW INEXPERIENCED John Edwards is....
Great job by the VP. This is what we had hoped to see from Bush last week, and WILL see from him on Friday. Cheney just devastated Edwards on 4-5 occasions. The "I never met you until tonight" will go down in debate lore as one of the great one liners. You could see after that comment, that Edwards just completely lost it. He never got back on track after that. I don't think Cheney did as good in the 2nd half, but he held his own. THought he passed on a couple of opportunities to hit Kerry/Edwards on some of the "soft personality" type questions. But guess he wasn't wanting to come off mean.
Edwards was always talking about a future topic, a previous topic, or so other topic. He hardly ever discussed the current question. And when he did, there were no specifics. I do think he landed some points on some of the Bush policy over the last few years. But again, he never did tell us "their plan". The only part I thought Edwards did well in was the area of tort reform. I thought he did at least give a concrete plan to curb his own profession. Other than that, he was just parroting 7-8 lines that Kerry did on Thursday. No new or unique thought. He came off very lightweight tonight.
Will be interesting to see how all of this is spun. But in my humble opinion, Cheney won on style, substance, AND delivery.
