VPs and presidents

I’m writing this letter at 7:06 p.m. while watching the vice-presidential debate (laptop computers make it so easy). What a wonderfully informative debate! It is so clear that both vice-presidential candidates are so capable, especially Cheney vs. Bush.

And it is so clear that Vice-President Cheney is unable to effectively defend Bush administration policies and actions, on both the foreign and domestic fronts. For example, think of all the associations the word “Haliburton” raises. Bush administration = corporate profits above all else. Kerry administration = real people.

I’m no fan of the Democratic Party ” I’m more progressive in my political opinions ” but, for this election at least, I urge votes for Democratic candidates across the board vs. votes for Republicans.

I would vote for John Edwards for president. I will be so much more comfortable with Edwards as vice-president, one heartbeat from the presidency, than Cheney.
