Final Debate Hiatus

For the last time (except maybe for Election Day itself, when I figure I’ll do a live-blogging marathon), I’m shortening the blogging day just a bit in order to prepare for live-blogging the final presidential debate. I’ll be back at around 8:30 PM EDT with some pre-event thoughts, and then plug through until the spin wars either subside or make me physically ill.

Please use the comment thread to post any thoughts or predictions you have about tonight’s debate. Perhaps the most fun and useful would be predictions of how the candidate manage to pivot from foreign policy questions to their favorite domestic themes.
