Yeah, I guessed it. The Moderator, and the candidates all managed to avoid things that the veeps might have some sort of power over, even if it isn't much. For everything else Cheny was much stronger, but only because of his experience. Edwards is mostly inept. He was answering questions a round late. If he was semi-intelligent he would have stayed on point.
However considering that the most important function of veep is to represent the american people I don't think either was very strong. Cheney wants us to be fearful of the terrorists. Edwards, well I can't really say much about Edwards, he didn't seem to have a point.
Still, they were just regurgitating what the presidential candidates were saying last week. I suppose its reasonable - it is a package deal - but I'd like to see some independent thought.
