  • SHE STANDS FOR US.

  • WITH JUST 36 DAYS UNTIL THE

  • ELECTION, EVERYTHING THAT

  • HAPPENS IN THE RACE FOR

  • PRESIDENT TAKES ON ADDED

  • SIGNIFICANCE.

  • PERHAPS MOST NOTABLE, THE

  • THREE DEBATES FOR THE MAJOR

  • PARTY CANDIDATES THAT BEGIN

  • THIS WEEK

  • WEEK24 HOUR NEWS EIGHT

  • POLITICAL REPORTER RICK ALBIN

  • JOINS US WITH WHAT TO EXPECT

  • AND TO TRY TO WEIGH THE

  • IMPORTANCE OF THIS EVENT.RICK,

  • LET'S START THERE... DO THESE

  • DEBATES REALLY CHANGE A LOT OF

  • MINDS?

  • THE SHORT ANSWER IS NO.

  • DEBATES TRADITIONALLY TEND TO

  • RE-ENFORCE AN INDIVIDUALS

  • PREFERENCE ... IF YOU ARE

  • LEANING TOWARD A CANDIDATE IT

  • IS LIKELY THAT A DEBATE WILL

  • JUST CONFIRM WHAT YOU HAVE

  • ALREADY BEEN THINKING. THAT IS

  • MORE OR LESS THE HISTORY WITH

  • THE EXCEPTION OF ONE NOTABLE

  • GROUP OF VOTERS ... UNDECIDEDS

  • IN SWING STATES ... THIS YEAR

  • PERHAPS MORE THAN EVER THAT

  • GROUP OF 8 TO 12 STATES WILL

  • ALMOST CERTAINLY PICK THE NEXT

  • PRESIDENT AND THE DEBATES ...

  • PARTICULARLY THIS FIRST ONE

  • ... COULD HAVE A BIG IMPACT.

  • 3

  • Q. DEBATES HAVE PROVIDED SOME

  • MAJOR MOMENTS FOR CANDIDATES

  • ... BOTH POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE

  • ... WHAT ARE SOME OF THOSE

  • EXAMPLES AND WHAT ARE THE

  • CHANCES WE WILL SEE SOMETHING

  • LIKE THAT THIS WEEK?

  • THE HISTORY IS PRETTY WELL

  • PART OF POLITICAL LORE ....

  • KENNEDY NIXON ... WHERE THE

  • RADIO AUDIENCE THOUGHT NIXON

  • PREVAILED WHILE THE TELEVISION

  • AUDIENCE SAW A NERVOUS LOOKING

  • MAN WHO NEEDED A SHAVE, UP

  • AGAINST THE CALM KENNEDY WHO

  • WENT ON TO WIN THE RACE OF

  • COURSE ... MANY LIKE TO

  • ROMANTICIZE THAT THIS DEBATE

  • WAS THE REASON, BUT IT IS

  • UNLIKELY THAT ANY DEBATE WAS

  • THE SOLE FACTOR ...

  • BUT THIS WAS THE COMING OF THE

  • TELEVISION AGE FOR DEBATES ...

  • IN 1976 JERRY FORD FAMOUSLY

  • CLAIMED THIS.

  • THAT OF COURSE WAS INACCURATE

  • AND GAVE JIMMY CARTER AN EDGE

  • IN THE DEBATE THOUGH MAKE NO

  • MISTAKE THE PARDON OR RICHARD

  • NIXON AND OTHER FACTORS HAD

  • MUCH MORE TO DO WITH FORDS

  • DEFEAT .. AND BY THE WAY HE

  • WAS CLOSING AT AN AMAZING RATE

  • AT THE END OF THAT RACE ...

  • MANY BELIEVE IF IT HAD GONE ON

  • ANOTHER 24 HOURS OR LESS THAT

  • FORD MIGHT HAVE PREVAILED.

  • THEN IN 1984 ... A

  • COMPARATIVELY YOUNGER WALTER

  • MONDALE SEEMED POISED TO TAKE

  • ON PRESIDENT REAGAN ... THEN

  • ALREADY IN HIS 70'S ... BY

  • SUGGESTING HE MIGHT BE TOO OLD

  • FOR A SECOND TERM ... REAGAN

  • ALMOST ERASED THE ISSUE WITH

  • THIS SINGLE DEBATE MOMENT

  • 3

  • REAGAN WON THE ELECTORAL

  • VOTE 525 TO 13. 3

  • 13.Q. WHAT ABOUT Q. WHAT ABOUT

  • STYLE VERSES SUBSTANCE ...

  • WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANT?

  • UNFORTUNATELY STYLE OFTEN

  • TRUMPS ... LOOK BACK AT 2000

  • WHEN AL GORE WAS ROLLING HIS

  • EYES AND LOOKED GENERALLY

  • DISDAINFUL OF GEORGE BUSH ...

  • PROBABLY DIDN'T HELP HIS CASE

  • IN ONE OF THE CLOSEST

  • PRESIDENTIAL RACE IN HISTORY.

  • IN 2004 IT WAS BUSH HISTORY.

  • IN 2004 RACE IN PRESIDENTIAL

  • THE CLOSEST CASE IN ONE OF

  • DIDN'T HELP HIS PROBABLY

  • GEORGE BUSH ... DISDAINFUL OF

  • GENERALLY LOOKED GENERALLY

  • DISDAINFUL OF GEORGE BUSH ...

  • PROBABLY DIDN'T HELP HIS CASE

  • IN ONE OF THE CLOSEST

  • PRESIDENTIAL RACE IN HISTORY.

  • IN 2004 IT WAS BUSH WHO LOOKED

  • BORED AND SEEMED IMPATIENT TO

  • GET DONE WITH THE DEBATES AND

  • AGAIN THAT IS A LOT OF WHAT

  • WAS TALKED ABOUT.

  • ABOUT.Q. FINALLY... WHO HAS

  • THE MOST TO GAIN OR LOSE ON

  • WEDNESDAY?

  • BY FAR MITT ROMNEY ... ON THE

  • DOWN SIDE IF HE MISSES ANY OF

  • THE OBVIOUSLY QUESTIONS ON

  • DOMESTIC ISSUES OR DOES NOT

  • HANDLE THEM WELL ... IT COULD

  • BE A LONG 34 DAYS TO NONMEMBER.

  • IF ON THE OTHER HAND HE HAS A

  • COMMAND OF THE ISSUES AND CAN

  • FIND A BREAK OUT MOMENT WHERE

  • HE DISTINGUISHES ... IN A

  • POSITIVE WAY ... .HIMSELF ROM

  • THE PRESIDENT HE COULD HELP

  • TURN THE CORNER ON A CAMPAIGN

  • THAT HAS SLIPPED IN THE LAST

  • COUPLE OF WEEKS.

  • FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA THE TASK

  • IS TO STAY ENGAGED ... DON'T

  • LOOK BORED AND MAKE SURE YOU

  • HIT YOUR MARKS ON ALL THE

  • QUESTIONS.

  • FOR BOTH, EVERY ANSWER WILL BE

  • DISSECTED AND REHASHED FOR 48

  • HOURS , PERHAPS LONGER, SO IF
