The mother of the fallen soldier and the Iraqi woman hugging was the most moving moment of the entire speech. I felt like crying...the whole thing was beautiful.

Did any of you watch Bush's face when he was talking about Iraq? When the Iraqi woman sitting by Laura reacted as she did, Bush was getting misty. Then, later, seeing the woman who lost her son in Iraq get hugged by the Iraqi woman while she held her son's dog tags, he started getting misty all over again (but then, so did I) and even got that twitch in his mouth we all get when we're fighting a losing battle to tears.
That is one of the reasons I really like Bush. He wears his heart on his sleeve, and he feels for those who are truely happy or suffering. I have seen him, and his dad, react this way on so many occasions, and I just have to smile (when I'm not effected the same way by the situation) to see that.
Like his politics or not, you have to appreciate that part of his personality.

Have you ever met Cheney? Do you hae any first hand account of the man?
Because I can tell you as someone who has met him a few times (and by met, I mean actually converse with the guy, not just shak hands with him) he was a very smart guy, and seemed very honest to tell you the truth.
