Cheney met Edwards
Cheney from the debate:
Now, in my capacity as Vice President, I am the president of the Senate and the presiding officer. I’m up in the Senate most Tuesdays when they’re in session. The first time I ever met you [Edwards] was when you walked on the stage tonight.The Official Kerry-Edwards blog refutes this. Apparently, Elizabeth Edwards put Cheney in his place (dark reaches of hell) after the debate:
"The vice president said that the first time I met Senator Edawrds was tonight when we walked on the stage. I guess he forgot the time we sat next to each other for a couple hours about three years ago. I guess he forgot the time we met at the swearing in of another senator. So, my wife Elizabeth reminded him on the stage," Edwards said as the crowd roared.
According to Edwards staff, Cheney replied, "Oh, yeah."
