Politics and the Presidential Debates

Hosted by

This week marked the third presidential debate among Republican candidates, the second for Democrats. Democrat Hillary Clinton won points for being polished and commanding. John McCain was criticized by Republicans for supporting the immigration bill, but won praise for the way he defended his position. Eighteen months before the election, are the debates more about style than substance? Are voters even paying attention? Also, world leaders and protestors gather in Germany for the G8 and, on Reporter’s Notebook, if you’ve got $5 billion to spare, Wall Street Journal employees would love to talk about selling you their newspaper. Sara Terry guest hosts.
