ABC’s Noted Now notes:
ELIZABETH EDWARDS ON ABC RADIO: “She’s overreacted to this and treated it as if it’s shameful to have this discussion. I think that’s a very sad state of affairsâ€¦ I think that it indicates a certain degree of shame with respect to her daughter’s sexual preferencesâ€¦ It makes me really sad that that’s Lynne’s response.”
LYNNE CHENEY AT POST-DEBATE RALLY: “The only thing I could conclude is that this is not a good man. This is not a good man. And, of course, I’m speaking as a mom. And a pretty indignant one. This is not a good man. What a cheap and tawdry political trick.”
DICK CHENEY TO NBC AFFILIATE WHO: “I would have said Sen. Kerry was out of line to bring my daughter into it. I thought it was totally inappropriate.”
WHAT KERRY SAID: “And I think if you were to talk to Dick Cheney’s daughter, who is a lesbian, she would tell you that she’s being who she was, she’s being who she was born as.”
KERRY CAMPAIGN: Senior Kerry aide acknowledges “it was not his best moment,” but calls charges that it was inappropriate “ridiculousâ€¦ The woman is in her thirties. She’s public about her sexuality. It was brought up in the last debate. So, what the hell?” ABC News’ Marc Ambinder reportsâ€¦
