Day3: Edwards vs. Cheney

Although I was extremely busy, I couldn't give up watching the VP debates. Cheney is a smart ultra conservative and I personaly prefer to listen to a smart ne-con than a stupid one like Bush. But Edwards was also very good and aggresive and litterally trashed Cheney's arguments. What was striking for me was the kiss up that Edwards is giving to the American jewish voters. About the Palestinian-Israeli issue, they guy did not bother even use the word Palestine or Palestinian. And off course he attacked Iran more than Bush's Axis of Evil speech. If all these is only a political show to get the Jewish vote, but I hope these guys don't offer the same crapy policies that Bush admin has been doing to Iranians over the past few years.

Today media tries to portray the debate as balanced one which didn't have any winner which is stupid. Cheney conceaded on 2 or 3 of the discussions by saying "I don't have anything to add".
This evening, we are going to do some more volunteer work for moveon.org to bring some of the democrate non-voters to the polls.
