The V.P. Debate, Black Women and AIDS

Critics say a question about AIDS and African-American women had Vice President Dick Cheney and Democratic challenger Sen. John Edwards bumbling for answers in Tuesday's vice-presidential debate. NPR's Tony Cox talks to Pernessa Seele, founder and CEO of the organization Balm in Gilead, and Deneen Robinson, an AIDS advocate and mother who has been living with HIV for 12 years.
