    "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," Cheney told Edwards during the debate.

I wonder if this reference might "stick" to both Senator Kerry and Senator Edwards, and that soon they may be referred to as "Goners". Certainly, if this should "stick", it would be very bad news for the "Kerry/Edwards" camp. By the sound of the debate, Senator Edwards was desparate -- swinging after the bell and being "punch drunk" in this debate. VP Dick Cheney...
