    thanks for making it; twice.

    cheney opposed freeing mandela and he opposed sanctions against the South African Government.

    The latter is the most important one to hit, it seems to me.

    •  Mandela / ANC (none)
      Minor disagreement on the emphasis.  I prefer focusing on Mandela (or Madiba as we call him).  Opposing sanctions had at least some argument in favour of it, despite the fact that they were crucial in bringing down apartheid.

      The point is to get a criticism that they can say absolutely nothing credible in response to.  Mandela is the ticket for that.  This should be kept in reserve until they start making a go for the African American vote.  Then ask, how can we support a VP who not only wants to see Mandela still in jail, but who Mandela regards as a dinosaur?
