OK, so some of us are not going out tonight to hang out and watch the debate. I’m just too tired to go through all of that. But I’ll be watching. And if you are hanging at home, feel free to join me 🙂 The debate starts at 9pm EDT.
According to the AP:
The debate, expected to reach a huge viewing audience, was supposed to focus on foreign policy, a topic generally viewed as a McCain strength. But given the roiling economic situation, moderator Jim Lehrer of PBS indicated he wouldn’t be constrained by the boundaries the two campaigns negotiated months ago.
I suspect we’ll hear quite a bit about the economy tonight, with some foreign policy stuff thrown in for good measure. And from the above linked article, it appears that the campaigns are trying to downplay expectations.
We’ll find out soon enough.
