Wednesday, October 6th, 2004 · 2 Comments

Despite what Cheney may think, last night on the debate floor was not the first he had met Edwards: “Vice President Dick Cheney said Tuesday night that the debate with Democratic Sen. John Edwards marked the first time they had met. In fact, the two had met at least three times previously.

Despite having the debate on the TV, I wasn’t able to watch it as closely as I would have liked (but Dan did), since we’re still hard-charging on the book production… tonight we put on the finishing touches.
