Obama v Romney 3

The third and final debate kicks off in about 2 hours. A summary from Stuff is here, and as always, check out The Guardian live blog. The focus is foreign policy, which would seem to play well to Obama’s strengths, and may well show up Romney’s inexperience.

    That’s what they said about McCain when he went up against Obama.

    Foreign affairs will not win the election*. “It’s the economy, stupid!”

    *Just one question in the two debates has been on foreign affairs – though that may have been deliberate given the special debate today

      All 3 of the debates have been tagged with specific focus areas and this last one if the foreign affairs one. The first was the taxation/economy debate so was naturally a platform that would favour Romney over Obama to begin with.

    Our 2PM is their 9PM Eastern time – I think. So Debate is in about 20 minutes from 1:40Pm ?

      Yep, Ian. The candidates are going through their last minute preps; Obama probably hitting a few hoops, Romney bending over to have his personality chip inserted …
