Are presidential debates about questions and answers? Not entirely.
They're also about the scene set by the candidates.
And on Wednesday night, when the candidates face off for the first time, all eyes will be on the two men vying for the presidency.
But what happened behind the scenes prior to the debates?
The candidates have to agree on things like whether to allow notes or cups of water on the podiums.
And each has to decide what language to use when talking about foreign policy or their mistakes as politicians.
In the latest issue of GQ, Robert Draper reveals what goes on behind the scenes, before the debates. And he joins host A Martinez to reveal all - about what it takes for a presidential candidate to appear victorious after the 90 minute battle.
