    The debate moderator for tonight's 2nd Presidential debate, Candy Crowley said she plans to really push the candidates if they don't answer the questions to her liking. This goes directly in the face of the agreed upon moderator duties that say, "the moderator will not ask follow-up questions or comment on either the questions asked by the audience or the answers of the candidates during the debate or otherwise intervene in the debate except to acknowledge the questioners from the audience or enforce the time limits, and invite candidate comments during the two-minute response period."

    Do you think she will change her mind and adhere? Or just do whatever she wants? Seems ballsy for a CNN anchor..

    Do you think Hilary taking responsibility for the President's foreign policy will help Obama tonight or is this an opening for Roney?

    I feel like it would be refreshing with a possibility for disaster. It would be nice to call out the vague and less than truthful responses but the media will have a field day if they feel one side was slighted in the least.
