    How much did both campaign spent to get here? Imagine if we didn't have money to finance presidential election campaign, how different are views would be.

    What?

    You mean you are at the debates? :confused:


    They get their money from private and public donors to finance their campaigns.

    Do you mean because of the financial crisis the country is in right now? The campaign money could help our country's crisis?

    Interesting.....

    I'm pretty sure they were talking about the way political advertising affects public opinion, and how after the debate a lot of public perception that has been based around the advertising and campaign events we have seen change, since the candidates will be there to defend themselves against attacks on the spot. Conservatives and Liberals gravitate towards media sources that agree with them and events that support their preferred candidate. Tonight will be the first night when we get to see both sides at the same time, on even footing.

    And, yes, the debate will definately be interesting.
