    Default Second Presidential debate information

    Presidential Debate Schedule 2008:McCain Obama Debate Schedule


    – Date: October 7
    – Site: Belmont University
    – Moderator: Tom Brokaw
    – Staging: Town Hall debate
    – Format: The moderator will call on members of the audience (and draw questions from the internet). Each candidate will have 2 minutes to respond to each question. Following those initial answers, the moderator will invite the candidates to respond to the previous answers, for a total of 1 minute, ensuring that both candidates receive an equal amount of time to comment. In the spirit of the Town Hall, all questions will come from the audience (or internet), and not the moderator.
    Do you think McCain will perform as well as Bush did against Kerry (yes, it pains me to say it, but...)?

    ^^I think Obama will be okay, especially if a lot of the questions are about the economy.

    How many times would you need to say "I'm a POW Maverick" to fill up 120 seconds?

    I don't understand why McCain would do well, I think Obama will clobber him. McCain is off balance and I mean that literaly!
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    Supposedly, McCain wanted more town hall debates. Apparently, he does better at them or at least is more comfortable with them. Perhaps the shortness (time wise) of the answers has something to do with it?

    This should be interesting, with the Town Hall aspect of it. My question for McPain would be "What's up with the wonk eye dude?"

    How about "How many strokes have you had this year senator McCain".

    In a TV interview I caught a snippet of, McCain said ...if Obama had participated in town hall meetings "like I told him to..." and he was pretty upset as he said it. I don't remember what the question was that had been asked, but I just remember thinking that ole' Johnny boy doesn't like it too much when people don't do as he's told them to.

    This question is for Senator McCain,
    Senator, someone once asked Obama what has he done for the black community and he answered this in depthly in regards to Katrina, the Sean Bell case, so on and so forth. Senator, what have you done for the black community?

    I'd like to see that, too. Honestly that's the way it should be. Two presidential debates, a VP debate, and a Presidential / VP debate.

    But will McCain look at Obama this time? Acknowledge him at all?

    I want to know how it makes sense to wage two (known) wars and cut taxes? Why this is in the best interest of the American people?
