Tom Schaller here. I will be posting during the debate tonight, but to get things kicked off, a few questions:
Has John McCain already hamstrung himself by backing out and then in again?
What is the threshold that Barack Obama needs to reach tonight? Is it topically -- given the focus on foreign policy -- McCain's to lose? That is, does a tie go to Obama?
What do you make of the new format that actually allows interchange and question posing of the opponent?
