Third Presidential Debate on Foreign Policy
Second Presidential Debate
First Presidential Debate
In the last of Democracy Now!'s exclusive "Expanding the Debate" series, they bring highlights of their coverage of last night’s final presidential debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney, with the added voices of third-party candidates. As Obama and Romney faced off for the last time before the general election, Democracy Now! once again broke the sound barrier by inserting Jill Stein of the Green Party and Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party into the discussion. In an evening focused on foreign policy, both Obama and Romney shared wide agreement on issues including support for the Israeli government, the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan, and opposition to U.S. military involvement in Syria. But they clashed over a few key points, including military spending, negotiating with Iran, and responding to the Libyan embassy attack. Before a live audience in San Rafael, California, Democracy Now! aired the Obama-Romney debate and paused the tape to give Stein and Anderson a chance to respond in real time to the same questions put to the major-party candidates.
This presidential election is not just about Obama and Romney. There are also third party presidential candidates and you have a unique opportunity to watch Libertarian Party's Gary Johnson, Green Party's Jill Stein, Constitution Party candidate Virgil Goode, and Justice Party candidate Rocky Anderson debating live on RT-America and rt.com on October 23 at 8 pm ET.
Larry King, the celebrated talk show host accustomed to A-list interview guests, has agreed to moderate a debate featuring a squad of minor-party presidential candidates.
The former CNN giant will guide next Tuesday's debate in Chicago, which will be broadcast on the Internet. The candidates taking part are the Libertarian Party's Gary Johnson, the Green Party's Jill Stein, the Constitution Party's Virgil Goode and the Justice Party's Rocky Anderson.
King told The Associated Press that it's clear none of them will win, but he said they all deserve a voice in the presidential race. Democrats and Republicans are keeping tabs on Johnson and Goode, two ex-Republicans who could be factors in key battleground states.
"They have a story to tell. It's a valid story," King said. "It's a two-party system, but not a two-party system by law."
King left CNN in 2010 and now hosts a show on Ora.TV, an on-demand Internet channel.
The debate was organized by the Free and Equal Elections Foundation, which has criticized the debates between Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney for excluding third-party candidates and coming off as too programmed.
Organizers say at-home viewers will be encouraged to submit real-time questions on the social media like Twitter, where they'll get King's attention with the "AskEmThisLarry" hashtag. Submit a question here:http://www.ora.tv/ora2012/thirdparty
