What’s in the water at Hofstra University?
And the show hasn’t even started yet. That may or may not be a transvaginal probe in Romney’s hand. Or a Sonicare toothbrush. We just don’t know.
Top surrogate and debate sparring partner says Romney has pulled even in Ohio, as he raises expectations for tonight’s town hall.
Weeks of debate prep still haven’t cured him of his most potent weakness: his reverence for the rulebook. “The way the rules work here is I get 60 seconds…”
But aides try to downplay expectations that he’ll come out swinging.
The benefits of a detail-oriented pool report. Thank you, Jason Horowitz.
The President heads into a similar format against Mitt Romney tonight at Hofstra University on Long Island.
High stakes tonight at Hofstra. In Denver, “we know we lost the post-debate.”
Sign of confidence from the Obama campaign. And a correction from the first debate.
Worries about the moderator.
“The Laughing Philosopher.”
The running mate settles into the bottom of the ticket. Joe Biden angles for the corner office.
Ryan held his own. But Biden stopped the bleeding.
“My father was my father,” says Beau.
“I don’t believe I have ever seen a debate in which one participant was as openly disrespectful as the other as Biden was.”
Joe Biden appeared to be doing interpretive kabuki pantomime while sitting next to Paul Ryan.
Republican attacks — and Onion mockery — offer an unusual twist in the ratings game. Biden expected to wear a shirt.
The Daily Beast blogger and ardent Obama supporter has been in panic mode about the President’s chances since the first debate.
Even the president’s most loyal fans have got to be getting annoyed with this.
Unlike Mitt Romney, Barack remembered the all-important, Beyoncé-endorsed tie dimple.
The reaction goes from playful to blistering.
The first debate was declared not a victory for either Obama or Romney, but for silly memes. The internet had a field day with Big Bird, but their efforts were aimed at multiple targets.
A pivot to the center ends his long and painful campaign to win over the Republican party. Government — it’s not so bad after all!
Now Romney has to win the next one too. And Obama doesn’t want to let this happen again.
Romney apparently had two opponents during the first debate: the President and the moderator. Watch Lehrer struggle to get a word in.
The campaign takes a cue from the Dillon Panthers.
“The mark of a good moderator here is to not be a part of the story.”
The presidential candidate asserted he would cut funding for PBS, the home of Sesame Street. It’s safe to say that Big Bird was not happy.
Where the Wi-Fi is $175, and it sometimes works.
Of all the photos coming out of Wednesday’s Presidential debate, three seemed to define how the night went for President Obama.
