    Cheney has years of political experience, and he's a mean SOB. Edwards is a trial lawyer who lacks political experience is is too "pretty" to hold up against the Cheney onslaught. This is gonna be funny. Unfortunately, my wife will have to record it and I'll watch it tomorrow before I go to work because I have to work tonite.

    I think Cheney's gonna chew up that schoolboy and spit him out. My only worry is that Cheney runs the risk of seeming mean or bullying, which is what he's always accused of, but I think Edwards smarmy lawyer act will get him in trouble as well. Maybe he can "channel" the spirit of a dead child, a jury bought it but I don't think the American public will. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    I hope I'm right.

    Cheney has a hole to try and climb out of with the war in Iraq. Edwards has a hole to climb into by convincing people he and Kerry can do the job better (and explain how). I dont think this debate will have much bearing on anything, other than possible good entertainment if Cheney's blood pressure gets up. Who knows?

    it should be fun to watch. Cheney has a very controlled, calm, confident way about his presentation that is pretty tough to beat IMO. I'm waiting for Edwards to get flustered and start talking about how a 4 month old baby girl is "inside him" telling him what to do...

    Cheney is known as Darth Vader when it comes to debating, but Edwards is a badass lawyer, so it should be better to watch than the Pres. debate

    I just turned it on, and all I gotta say so far is GO DICK, GO DICK, GO DICK!

    He's hammering John, and John has nothing to say in response, he just changes the subject.

    Agreed... I told my wife there's a compressor under the table pumping freon through cheney's veins... That guy is cool as a cucumber, totaly unfluster-able.

    All I know is Edwards is pretty damn good at saying "We can do better than that" He must have said it like 5000 times tonight /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif The "Dick" was calm and cool IMO.

    Edwards reminds Me of a used car salesman, and sounds about as crooked as one.

    Very good debate! I must admit though; Cheney is a very impressive liar. I can't believe he can keep a straight face as he speaks to the American people. /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    Edward did a superb job educating the American people on the truth! His experience as a Lawyer really showed when he placed the record of the Bush Administration on trial! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Friday's debate will be a good one, Kerry will further dismantle Bush. No wait! Bush will do it to himself! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif Can't wait to see it! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif [​IMG]

    So the pres. and VP are wholly to blame for those numbers. If thats what you think, then me thinks you are a douche.

    How can you say that with a straight face? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif You find ONE politician (Democrat, Republican, or otherwise) that isn't an accomplished liar, and I will personally kiss your a$$ /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    Im more or less voting for Kerry, but, I gotta admit that Cheney was the winner last night. Edwards was simply outgunned. Cheney is like a walking encyclopedia of american politics. Very respectable performance by Cheney, and a nice try by Edwards. I want to see what happens friday night.
