Presidential debate reaction


Hour 1

With the race for the presidency is in its last few weeks and the candidates locked in a very close race, the stakes were high for last night’s second debate between President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.  A town hall setting allowed voters to ask questions and the format was expected to provide for real answers instead of barbs, zingers and attacks.  In this hour of Radio Times we’ll get reaction to the second Presidential debate from BEN BERGER, associate professor of political science at Swarthmore College, and TOM FERRICK, senior editor of Metropolis.
