Another will be a town-hall style debate on October 7th at Belmont University. The last will be on domestic and economic policy on October 15th at Hofstra University.

Vice presidential contenders will meet October 2nd at Washington University in St. Louis.

I found out in 2004 that the campaigns actually have to negotiate on stuff like the background, the size of the podium, and seemingly small things...They're so sanitized and ribbed for your protrection so their candidate gets every slight advantage...

No one wants their candidate to come across like a sweaty Nixon in 1960...

I know,they are very sanitized but one can always hope for a Sen Bentson moment!

Sometimes the VP debates are more interesting and off the cuff but I've never made a final decision based on the outcome of a debate.
