Gwen throws a curveball: AIDS at home

Making the point that young African-American women are more than 13 times more likely to die of AIDS than other Americans with the illness, the moderator asked Cheney what should be done to address that problem. Cheney spoke largely about the administration's international effort, but to his credit admitted that he wasn't aware of the numbers Ms. Ifill cited. But that he had no idea of the degree of the problem among African-Americans speaks volumes.

Alas, Edwards never really took on the question, either.
