First impressions

My initial impression from tonight's debate, which I gathered by walking across the newsroom and listening every once in a while, is that this debate is much more about te veep candidates than anybody thought. And that seemed like a very extended discussion on tort reform. Edwards used the stat that I think trumps everything else in the tort debate, "one half of 1% of total healthcare costs" are due to lawsuits according to the non partisan CBO. Cheney came back slugging, but there is no way to refute that in an argument about lowering costs. Much more to come.
