Cheney-Edwards debate

Before I read the spin:

  1. Dick Cheney doesn't want to talk about an amendment banning gay marriage. "I didn't think the amendment was necessary. It should be left to the states. But the President wants the amendment. I support the president."
  2. Dick Cheney doesn't want to talk about Halliburton: "Gwynn, I'll need more than thirty seconds to respond to [Edwards' charges about Halliburton.]"
  3. There were times when Edwards talked too fast, but when he slowed down he sounded great.
  4. The Republicans are probably hoping that the final debate featured Dick Cheney. He is poised and articulate.
  5. Unfortunately for them, they've got to endure another performance from the least qualified candidate on either party's ticket: George W. Bush.
