Foreign Affairs and the Race to the White House

Hosted by

On Monday, the last presidential debate of the 2012 campaign will center on foreign policy. A list of topics has been agreed upon, but with surprises cropping up in the world every day, we know that the rules for presidential debates are made to be broken. The latest point of contention is the deadly attack on the consulate in Benghazi. Republicans call President Obama a "weak leader."  Democrats say Mitt Romney's view of America's role in the world is "delusional." But, over all, are they really so different?  Does Obama look more like George W. Bush than he might concede?  Would Romney look a lot like Obama?
