Cheney & Edwards Back on Campaign Trail After Testy Debate

OCTOBER 6, 2004 - Posted at 7:23 a.m. CDT

 

CLEVELAND, OH - Vice President Cheney and Senator John Edwards slugged it out last night over Iraq, jobs and each other's judgement.

Cheney accused Edwards of shifting positions, calling him not credible in Iraq.

Edwards accused Cheney of misleading on the case for the war and the current bloodshed.  He said Cheney isn't being straight with the American people.

Democrats say Edwards extended John Kerry's momentum.  But Republicans say Cheney stopped that in its tracks.  Meanwhile, post-debate polls give a split decision in last night's face-off.  Cheney did best in an ABC poll.  It showed that out of a Republican-leaning group of people who watched the debate, 43 percent said the vice president won, while 35 percent said Edwards prevailed.  Meanwhile a CBS poll of undecided voters had Edwards winning.

Both men will be in Florida today, further evidence of that state's importance in the presidential race.

Edwards flies to West Palm Beach for a big rally.  Cheney heads to Tallahassee on a swing that will also include stops in Gainesville, Miami and Ft. Myers.
