    John Kerry on Larry King

    KING: How will Senator Edwards fare against him in the debate...

    KERRY: Well, you know...

    KING: ... talk about the experience?

    KERRY: I think people make a great mistake to sort of hype these debates. Overall, Dick Cheney is really very, very competent, knows how to -- he's been very knowledgeable, as you've said.

    Oh yes,this is the interview where Kerry says he hasn't had time for a national security briefing!!! I would smell fear too if I had to go against Dick Cheney. Edwards is charming,but he will not do well talking about issues of national defense and security.

    Maybe if they debate hair products Edwards will gain some ground.

    Cheney will be calm,collected and in command of the facts. Edwards will know that he is behind before it even starts and will have to scramble like a slick lawyer to keep up. People will see that however I'm not sure it will influence many voters to change thier minds.

    Probably won't. The only thing that I can think were the vice President may strongly come into play is if something happened to the President. A local talk show host was pounding on that subject the other day. Would you want Edwards in charge of National Security if something happened to John Kerry? It is a scary thought. I think Kerry just picked up Edwards in hopes of picking up votes in the South.

    If you put the question in its proper context, it becomes less of a problem. In the scenario you discussed, kerry would be president, so we already have a disaster on our hands. If Edwards somehow were to become president, how could it get much worse than kerry? I mean, once we've hit bottom, how much further can we drop?

    Okay, I'm not saying this because of you krisy, so no offense to you at all, but I keep hearing this. Do people (Kerry, dems., etc.) think us Southerners are so damn stupid that we'd vote for Kerry just to have a southerner as VP? I'm mean really?! It's just starting to really piss me off! I'm in NC, born and raised, and there's noway that I, or anyone else I know here, would vote Edwards into the Whitehouse!
