Cheney's Praise of Bush Takes a Dig at Clinton (and Reagan)
Earlier in the day, while speaking to about 150 people in a suburban backyard outside Milwaukee, Mr. Edwards accused the administration of covering up a struggling economy that only recently has begun showing signs of improvement.
"They are going to try over and over to put lipstick on this pig, that's exactly what they're going to try to do," he said. "You can put as much lipstick you want, but at the end of the day it's still a pig."
John: While suburban Milwaukee is technically a part of America's Heartland, the down-home Dan Rather metaphors aren't going to impress anyone.
