Just when you thought it was safe to go outside

So, here we are, a mere twenty-four hours before the Vice Presidential debates, debates most of us likely thought were not worth a bother at all. We may have been wrong.

With the incumbents on the run, or maybe just standing off the ropes, there's much that hinges on the performance of the Vice President and the Senator from North Carolina.

My question: Can Cheney "return public attention to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the administration's broader handling of the terrorism threat and away from what they called a 'second-guessing' debate over the decision to invade Iraq"? Or do most Americans -- whether or not they support our war on Iraq -- see through the administration's fog and understand that there's a "war on terrorism" and then a "war on Iraq," the second just happening to draw in terrorists after we had unseated a legitimate (albeit evil and dangerous) government. Even the administration is hinting that the link between Saddam and al Qaeda was ephemeral, at best.

Tune in tomorrow night for Cheney and Edwards; I'm looking forward to sparks.
