Advice for watching the debate -

"Remember, it's a television show," said Alan Schroeder, Northeastern University associate professor of journalism and author of "Presidential Debates: Fifty Years of High-Risk TV." "Television is not an intellectual medium. It's an emotional one."

The best advice: "After the debate is over, turn off your television and make up your own decision," said Aaron Zelinsky, editor of Presidentialdebateblog.com. "Don't wait to be spun by the post-debate commentary. I hope to put guys like me out of business."

We need to remember this is not a sporting event.   This is the future of our country, for ourselves and generations.   What Barack Obama represents is change at a fundamental level and a firm acceptance of entry into the global world.
