  •  No, I think it is that (0+ / 0-)

    Cheney is a better debater. I am no fan of Cheney's demeanor, but he projected competance and gravity. I'm not a fan of Edwards either and he did nothing to win me over even though I desperately wanted him to impress me.

    •  The media ascribes gravitas and (0+ / 0-)
      a sense of competence to arrogant people like Cheney and Rumsfeld.  It ain't there.

      •  I saw it myself (0+ / 0-)

        I'm not reporting what the media said. Everything that goes wrong for us isn't the fault of the MSM or the Republicans. Sometimes we just suck.

        •  I hardly take the position that (0+ / 0-)
          all our problems start outside of us.  We often suck. But I also recall how sickeningly the media responded to big strong burly Rumsfeld and the way he slapped down reporters--  Ooohh...a real man.  And the stories about how the adults were in charge again.  Your perception is your perception.  I was disappointed in Edwards debate performance, too, although I don't agree with the strength of your assessment.
