US Foreign Policy Seen from Foreign Shores

Hosted by

That presidential elections are not won on issues of foreign policy is a political cliché. But foreign policy is the issue of tonight's final debate in a campaign now widely believed to be dead even. In the places likely to be in dispute, do people see real differences between Obama and Romney?  We hear some voices from overseas. Also, Lance Armstrong is formally stripped of his Tour de France titles, and George McGovern has died at the age of 90. A famous loser in presidential politics, he was a war hero and a winner as a humanitarian. We look at his legacy.
