I don't know about you, but I've been gearing up for tonight's presidential debate for weeks.
While President Obama and Mitt Romney have been campaigning for what feels like forever already, the debates are super-importanpresit. USA Today explains: "Up to 60 million people could be tuning in for answers that will help them decide whether to continue the nation's course under Obama or move in a different direction with Romney at the helm."
For me, it's about time. Sure, receiving campaign giveaways is great. And some of the candidates' TV spots have even been interesting. But I'm more than ready to watch the presidential hopefuls go head-to-head. I want to hear, in their own words, what President Obama and Mr. Romney plan to do for this country. And I'm excited to see who comes out on top.
What will be the main topics of conversation? USA Today says to look out for conversations about jobs and unemployment, taxes, health care and other domestic issues.
Tonight's debate will be 90 minutes long and will air at 9 p.m. EST on most major networks (ABC, NBC, FOX, etc.). According to Mashable, you can also catch it online via YouTube, Tumblr (in "live-GIF" format), Ustream, Microsoft/Xbox Live and C-SPAN's "debate hub."
