"The bright light of America"

Edwards just gave a great closing statement after an uneven final half-hour of the debate. The image of his dad sitting in front of the television in the morning to learn math, and knowing that he lived in a country where he could get a college education, which made him hopeful, knowing that he grew up in "the bright light of America...But now that light is flickering." Great stuff.

Now Cheney is giving his, scaring the cr*p out of people about the "global war on terror." I have a feeling that, having the last word, and playing to a traumatized population, Cheney's forceful closing statement had the higher impact.
