WHAT DO YOU EXPECT OF THE FIRST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE?

 WELL, THE TIME HAS COME!! The first presidential debate is on this week.  Some people call Wednesday’s event as the “super bowl “of politics. Time to take the gloves off. Let us remind everyone what the debate is about: The debate will focus on domestic policy and be divided into six time segments of approximately 15 minutes each on topics to be selected by the moderator and announced several weeks before the debate. The moderator will open each segment with a question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a discussion of the topic.

Who do you think will happen?  Some say it will be pure “attack and defense” or will it be a “do or die” for Romney or a “meltdown for the President? Will the post-debate be better than the debate? Will there finally more explanation regarding the details of what both candidates will do if they win?

Obviously, the main argument is who will win? I will have to agree with writing from Josh Clark from “how stuff works”. He says: “The results of debates are all about perception. There’s the perception of the national news anchors who serve as commentators, who lead viewers in by telling them what to expect. Then they lead viewers out of the debate by dissecting what was just said. There’s the perception of the media who write about the debate. What commentators and reporters choose to discuss can help shape the minds of the voting public — the group whose opinion matters the most in determining the winner of a debate”.

So, at the end of the day, let’s hope the debates are no a circus and maybe we will have a better opportunity to decide on one candidate or the other. See you next week!
