I'll be watching too, even though I expect they'll all talk a lot without really saying anything.

I wish that during the debates they would show the clips of Romney and Obama from the past, each time they lie.   That would REALLY make it worth watching.   We'll watch the debates, but I'll be sure to have a book or sudoku close by for the 95% I expect will be a rehash of what we've been hearing the past 6 mos.

I'll watch a bit, but I already know what will happen. Obama will talk about what he wants to talk about and Romney will talk about what he wants to talk about. Romney doesn't want to talk about Romneycare, Obama doesn't ant to talk his record.

Obama hasn't had any problem talking about his record.

He seems to focus on the future or "forward" I believe is the slogan. Not much about gas prices, Fast & Furious, Afghanistan, unemployment, the housing market, Libya... better stop there, this could get really long.
