Well, the "controversy" over Kerry's remark about Mary Cheney has turned into something of a story. Is this political posturing by Mr. & Mrs. Cheney? Given Cheney's reaction to the same subject during the VP debate, I have to think so. And if that's the case, then exactly who is exploiting Mary Cheney...John Kerry, or her own mother and father? Incidentally, I talked with a few co-workers about this thing, and they got the same impression Elizabeth Edwards had...that Mrs. Cheney in particular might be ashamed of her daughter.
