The second presidential debate starts in a bit over an hour (12:00pm AESummerT). Who’s planning to watch/liveblog/tweet it? Are we expecting anything new compared to last time?
Addit: This debate is apparently a little different – “town hall style” – which means that the questions will come from the live audience and from questions submitted over the internet over recent weeks. (NYT article). I suspect that this format will strongly favour Obama’s style of engaging with audiences over McCain’s rather stiffer style. For those who’ve been paying attention to the debates for several electoral cycles, do these town hall style events tend to be viewed as more revealing of the “real” candidates, or as more exercises in populism without the strong direction of the moderator (I know Tom Brokaw is moderating, but he won’t be asking his own questions)?
