    John – you should have asked Mr. Cheney how his health care costs have been paid for. He's had extraordinary interventions like the defibrilator and heart pump, was any of it covered by Medicare? Did he pay out of his own pocket? I would like to know his view about universal health care coverage, as I was struck that most working class Americans would not be able to afford the procedures he received, either with or without insurance.

    Mr. Cheney is not a tribute to medical progress as you noted, Mr. King, he is a tribute to the best medicine wealth can buy in this country. The average working person today who has a first heart attack at 37, and lacks health insurance or has health insurance with the usual limitations would find Mr. Cheney's level of Cadillac care well out of financial reach, very likely resulting in a much shorter life span than Mr. Cheney has enjoyed. That growing chasm between the relatively few haves and rapidly growing have nots in the opportunity to enjoy a long, healthy life without crushing medical bills is the point that you should have made.

    How can you give credit to Bush/Cheney because there was no terror attack in 7 years? The question should have been how could Bush/Cheney allowed the biggest terrorist attack to happen under their watch.

    Should we call a drunk-driver a hero because he didn't kill anybody? Of course, the one who killed while driving-drunk should go to jail, no matter how long before that he didn't kill anybody.

    John King,
    How is it courageous to raise taxes? It's gutless and political grandstanding that will do very little about the debt and will discourage investment, prosperity and damage the economy on a group of people who already pay an enormous percentage of the tax burden. Why can't you journalists just tell the truth on this? Are you that wedded to the Democrats that you can't do your job?
