Second presidential debate tonight!

With four weeks left till Elec­tion Day, the pres­i­den­tial race is heat­ing up! The sec­ond of three pres­i­den­tial debates is tonight at 9pm EST, so I hope every­one’s popped their pop­corn, read up on their elec­tion cov­er­age and gen­er­al­ly made their debate prepa­ra­tions, because I think its going to be a good one. This debate is in the “town­hall” style where ques­tions are going to be asked either from a pool of unde­cid­ed vot­ers or by mod­er­a­tor, Tom Brokaw, from ques­tions sub­mit­ted via the inter­net. There are some pret­ty spe­cif­ic rules about the town­hall (for instance, peo­ple who asked ques­tions will be filmed ask­ing the ques­tions but not react­ing) and there is also no fol­low-up ques­tions or direct ques­tion­ing between the can­di­dates. Regard­less, it promis­es to be an excit­ing view­ing so I hope every­one tunes in! Check it out on any num­ber of net­works and cable sta­tions at 9pm ESt/8pm CST/6pm PST.
