“I said then and I believe today that freedom does mean freedom for everybody. People ought to be free to choose any arrangement they want. It’s really no one else’s business. That’s a separate question from the issue of whether or not government should sanction or approve or give some sort of authorization, if you will, to these relationships.”
– Vice President Dick Cheney during his debate with John Edwards Oct. 5, 2004.

“I think the vice president and his wife love their daughter. I think they love her very much. And you can’t have anything but respect for the fact that they’re willing to talk about the fact that they have a gay daughter, the fact that they embrace her. It’s a wonderful thing. And there are millions of parents like that who love their children, who want their children to be happy.”
– John Edwards during his debate with Vice President Dick Cheney Oct. 5, 2004.

“I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, and so does John Kerry. I also believe that there should be partnership benefits for gay and lesbian couples in long-term, committed relationships.”
– John Edwards during his debate with Vice President Dick Cheney Oct. 5, 2004.

“I want to make sure people understand that the president is proposing a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage that is completely unnecessary. … We ought to be talking about issues like health care and jobs and what’s happening in Iraq, not using an issue to divide this country in a way that’s solely for political purposes. It’s wrong.”
– John Edwards during his debate with Vice President Dick Cheney Oct. 5, 2004.

“I had not heard those numbers with respect to African-American women.”
– Vice President Dick Cheney to moderator Gwen Ifill during his debate with John Edwards Oct. 5, 2004. Ifill’s question included the statistic that black women between the ages of 25 and 44 are 13 times more likely to die of the disease than their counterparts.

“My favorite moment of the VP debate: Cheney saying to the moderator that this was the first he heard that that many black women in America had AIDS. Clueless.”
– Michael Moore in an email to his mailing list Oct. 6, 2004.
