As a former Vegas user and current Premiere user, I don’t think you’ll go wrong with either one of those.
If you go the Adobe way, try to get Photoshop Elements as this will give you more options.
You can get Vegas and Premiere for very good prices [less than $150] if price is a concern.
If money is not a big issue then you may what to look at Sony’s and Adobe’s more "Pro" softwares however in the right hands their so-called lesser NLE’s can/will give you very Pro results.
I’m sure there are other options out there but those are the two that I’ve worked with for both personal and work projects, so I can say they are good.
Avid is one that I’ve worked with as well but not enough to say one way or the other but you may want to look at them as well.
