The second formal Presidential debate between Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) will be held tonight at 9pm EDT. This is the second of three scheduled general election debates between the two major-party candidates. Third-party candidates are excluded from participation.

Tonight’s debate will be held at Belmont University in Nashville and will be moderated by former NBC Nightly News host Tom Brokaw.

I strongly recommend that all Americans watch this debate, as well as the single remaining Presidential debate between now and the November elections. For unfettered coverage, I recommend watching the debates on C-SPAN rather than any of the commercial broadcast and cable news outlets.
