October 20, 2004: Edwards Emerges As Typical VP Candidate (AP)

  • Before the president’s address on terrorism earlier this week, Edwards charged that Bush was making “one last stand to con the American people into believing that he is the only one who can fight an effective war on terror.” And, he added, Bush was “exploiting a national tragedy for personal gain.”
  • Earlier this month, Edwards defended Kerry by contending that Bush and Cheney were “completely out of touch with reality” about the Iraq war and the economy, and were “refusing to level with the American people.”
