I’ll be live tweeting @AirTalk tonight during the debate. Of greatest interest to me about President Obama is whether he’ll be able to crisply make his arguments and maintain a high level of energy for the full 90-minutes. With Mitt Romney I’ll be looking to see whether he can loosen up in the town hall format and make a good connection with the questioners.
What was most striking for me about the first debate was how strongly Romney played with women. That had been a huge problem for him throughout the campaign. In fact, a couple of months ago I joked about the “ten single women in the country who were voting for Romney.” He found a way to connect with women two weeks ago and he’ll attempt to build on that tonight. The President, obviously, hopes to reverse his loss.
