Can someone give me a summary of one of the presidential debates?

as long as it's not the one from oct. 14

because for my history class i have to write essays about 2 presidential debates and focus on 3 questions that were asked and how each candidate responded to each question

it can even be a vice presidential debate.

so please just give me the date of the debate, as well as 3 questions that were asked and the way each candidate responded to them. and if they seemed nervous, sort of worked their way around the question, or just answered it straight up and did a good job.

thanks soo much! (:

    • Let wall street run wild

    • Overwhelming deregulation on Wall Street

    • Obama wanted to reinstate the regulations – McCain supported deregulation

    • Wanted the health care to be deregulated

    • McCain voted the same way

    • McCain voted 477 times to raise taxes

    Biden proposed taxes for 250,00

    • Fairness

    • 95% of the people in the USA will get a tax break

    • economic engine of America = the middle class

    Palin proposed taxes on health care benefits

    • Biden is forgetting the small businesses that would not fit into that category

    • Paying higher taxes does not = patriotic

    • Obamas proposition is the backwards way to reimbursing the economy

    • Obama would mandate health care


    • Exxon mobile = 4 million tax cut by McCain

    • Not fairness

    • 20 million will be dropped

    • ultimate bridge to nowhere

    Global Warming
