The VP Debate

October 6th, 2004

Okay, here we go with the second debate.

Ifill’s first question was to Cheney: Bremer said we had not enough troops, a good plan, and did not stop looting, Rumsfeld said there was no connection between Hussein and al Qaeda; Cheney’s answer was a succinct summary of all the old excuses. Edwards faced and addressed Cheney directly and told him he wasn’t being straight with the American people, and then gave what seemed like just as scripted a reply. Edwards seems to be taking the strategy of directly addressing Cheney to tell him he’s wrong.

Cheney is coming across as calm, clear and professional; Edwards is too, with a sense of easiness and a southern accent. So far both are solid in their own ways.
