Cheney, Edwards Preparing For Tuesday Debate
Vice President Cheney and Sen. John Edwards will meet on Tuesday at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland for the sole vice presidential debate. The AP reports both "will spend a few days preparing for the debate and relaxing, their campaigns said." Cheney will spar with Rep. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, "who will play Edwards during mock debates." Edwards "will be coached by Washington lawyer Robert Barnett."
