    Time Machine to 2004:  
    Cheney says the economy's not as bad as the numbers say, because economic indicators miss everybody who makes money selling on eBay. "That’s a source that didn’t even exist 10 years ago," Cheney told an audience in Cincinnati on Thursday. "Four hundred thousand people make some money trading on eBay."
    John Edwards' response:
    "If we only included bake sales and how much money kids make at lemonade stands, this economy would really be cooking."
