Based on a certain other thread, I guess there may be some watching - but not for political reasons

I'm not sure how much actual new content this is going to have. Isn't this usually just a parrot session for the top dogs?

Senator, I knew Jack Kennedy. I served with Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. And you, Senator, are no Jack Kennedy.

BTW...it's on at 9 p.m. tomorrow (Tuesday) Eastern time, and will be on all the major networks, plus CNN and FOX.

I'm going to watch. I think it will be a good debate. Both Edwards and Cheney are excellent debaters. I thought Cheney was excellent against Lieberman. In fact, that was one hell of a great debate, maybe the best I've ever seen. I loved the "courtliness" of that debate.

I missed that one back in 2000--being from Cleveland I'm going to watch--might have a bit of a local flavor to it--and this election is important to me. But I don't think you can deny that the interest for this is lower than the Presidential debates. Raising the question--do the running mates really matter? Do you think anyone really votes for a candidate because they honestly think that Cheney could lead the country better than Edwards or vice versa? I'm gonna try to reserve judgment but I'm guessing I might as well be watching Bush and Kerry campaign spokespersons going at it on crossfire or hannity and colmes.

One of the great debate lines of all time.

I am definitely going to watch. Given the importance of this election, I don't think the VP candidates are anything to snub. I wonder, though, how much (or little) impact the VP candidates have on the undecided votes. Probably not a lot but I think it will be a good debate. I saw Edwards on CSPAN at a rally and he just rocks.

why NBC, you wouldn't be referring to ME would you?

but i'm not all superficial. the fact that he's good looking is just a bonus to me. i'll be watching the debate for substance too. to be honest i'm very nervous. dick cheney is a brilliant, experienced man, corrupt though he may be.

I think that as good as Cheney may be, Edwards is going to mop the floor with him.

I doubt that. Edwards did pretty poorly in the Democrat debates for President (I watched them all) and he doesn't have anywhere near the experience that Cheney has. Cheney has seen it all and like it or not he knows how the game is played. If anything I think that Republicans can be pretty confident about this debate. This is basically the rookie vs. the proven veteran.

I've been told that Edwards is at least the equal to, if not better than, Kerry at debating...

I don't think that is true. Somebody must have thought that Kerry did well with 80% of the Democrat vote going to him in some primary states. I'm just saying that if Edwards is as good a debater that everyone says he is or hears that he is I don't see where they are getting that proof from because he certainly did poorly in the primary debates.
