In heated exchanges that skirted some of the debates negotiated rules, the two vice presidential candidates met in Cleveland for their one and only debate.
With less than a month to go before the election- and the race so close-- the V- P confrontation was full of sharp criticism and accusations.
They mainly clashed over the war in Iraq, the economy, and each other's records.
Susan Roberts is in Washington, D-C and joins us now with highlights from the debate.

the attacks of September 11th and Saddam Hussein.
CHENEY SOT 21:05:24 The world is far safer today because Saddam Hussein

is in jail, his government is no longer in power and we did exactly the right thing
SENATOR EDWARDS ACCUSED THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION WITH MISMANAGING THE CONFLICT IN IRAQ.

EDWARDS SOT: 21:34:03 remember shock and awe, look at where we are now,

and it is a direct result of the failure to plan, the failures to have others involved this effort.
VICE PRESIDENT CHENEY ARGUED THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET HAD CHANGED POSITIONS TOO OFTEN TO LEAD.

CHENEY SOT: 21:26:13 we have not seen the kind of consistency that

commander in chief has to have in order to be a leader in wartime and see strategy thru to victory.
ROUND TWO BROUGHT THE WASHINGTON INSIDER AND FORMER TRIAL LAWYER TO DOMESTIC ISSUES.. WITH THE ECONOMY FRONT AND CENTER.

CHENEY SOT 21:54:37 I think kerry edwards approach is to raise taxes and

give government more control over lives of individual citizens. We think that is the wrong way to go. There is a fundamental difference of opinion here.
EDWARDS SOT 21:56:01 we are for more tax cuts for the middle class than

theyre for, but not for more tax cuts for multimillionaires and it is a fundamental difference about what we think needs to be done in this country.
