I thought I heard something:
“The gasp from the audience was audible.”
Cheney referred to one of his few constitutional duties as president of the Senate and noted that he was there most Tuesday’s when the Senate was in session and despite the fact that Edwards has been in the Senate for six years, the two had never met until he tonight. This was a serious moment that threw Edwards back, and he never recovered. The gasp from the audience was audible.
