Plasma v. Rear Projection, EDTV v. HDTV

I am looking for a 42" TV for my great room. Because it is a bright room I was considering plasma since picture appears brighter from all angles.
I am considering the Panasonic 42PD5OU or the Samsung SPR 4232.
I will be putting a home theater in my basement with an 8 foot screen so I don't feel like I need anything too exceptional. I will be watching mostly cable tv, network shows, news channels, etc. on the tv I buy.
1. Is plasma better for a bright room than a DLP or LCD projection?
2. Will there be that much of a difference between ED or HD from about 6 to 8 feet away? It's my understanding that the picture is similar on a 42" plasma.
