    A window into the soul 

    Tipton, Iowa - Sen. John Kerry had debates on his mind this morning as he campaigned in the state that rescued him from the dustbin of history in the January caucuses - both Sen. John Edwards' tonight with Vice President Cheney and Round 2 of his own duel with President Bush on Friday.

    "We've got a big night for the country," Kerry said. "I'll tell you where my money is." Well, on Edwards, of course, a trial lawyer whom Cheney's advisers call "The Man With the Golden Tongue."

    Then he got all touchy-feely. "You know, in these debates, people talk about win and lose, but that's not what it's about," Kerry said. "This is an opportunity for the American people to look into our souls a little bit and check our guts, and I like that."

    Of course it's a little bit easier to take a philosophical view when tout le monde says you creamed your opponent in the first debate last Thursday night.
