First, let me say that I am a Republican and support Bush. I did not know that Cheney has an openly gay daughter and apparently disagrees with Bush on gay rights. The best part of the debate for Edwards IMHO was when he pointed out Cheney's voting record. I believe the Democrats would have an easier campaign if Edwards was their presidential nominee. He seemed to be clearer on the issues and a more likeable person than Kerry. Even if I were not a supporter of Bush's positions, I would not be able to vote for Kerry. You can argue about whether Kerry is flip-flopping on the issues but at the least he will not be perfectly clear about where he stands. Bush is clear, whether you agree with him or not. As far as who won the debate, I would say it was a tie. Cheney did a good job when he stated that Edwards was discrediting the effort and casualties Iraqis have had during the war. He also showed the voting record of Kerry and Edwards. However, Edwards did a good job talking about the war. What are your opinions on the debate?
