Presidential Debate Number 3 Open Thread

The third and final presidential debate takes place in Boca Raton, Florida tonight. Between the debate, the Lions/Bears along with game seven of the Cards/Giants, my picture-in-picture-in-picture will be getting a workout.

The focus of this debate is foreign policy, so in addition to Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and Libya, I hope they’ll touch on this:

The debt that the U.S. government owes to foreign interests now equals approximately $47,495 for each household in the United States, according to the latest data released by the U.S. Treasury and the Census Bureau.

The portion of the U.S. government’s foreign debt now owed to interests in Mainland China is about $10,090 per household.

This morning Michelle wrote a feature about tonight’s moderator, CBS’s Bob Schieffer.

The Right Scoop will have a live feed going so you can watch online here.

A couple of possible game changers:

–Candy Crowley won’t be there to help out Obama on Benghazi. Advantage: Romney

–Boca is only about 13 feet above sea level. Advantage: Obama

–The debate is in a smoke-free building. Advantage: Schieffer.

Consider this an open thread for the evening’s festivities.

Meanwhile, as Election Day approaches, Michelle Obama has a suggestion. In four years we’ve gone from “Hope & Change” to “Anybody Got a Plunger?”

Update: I was hoping Romney would touch on Obama’s “more flexibility after the election” comment to Medvedev earlier this year, and he did:

Ouch. That information is being transmitted to Vladimir as we speak.
