Candidates on TV – 21 days left!

In Politics, US Elections on October 13, 2008 at 3:47 pm

If you wish to gather candidates, VP candidates, and/or their traps and mistakes this week on TV, you´ll have every chance to do so. Starting off with the third and last presidential debate on Wednesday, Oct 15, 9pm ET or 5pm PT. As Barack Obama leads with comfortable 10 points in recent national polls, this Wednesday´s debate will provide the last chance for John McCain to convince an audience nation-wide and gain back lost territory. Although liberal and even republican comments in today´s New York Times suggest that this won´t happen, drawing historic comparisons. Bob Schieffer of CBS is moderating the debate, taking place at Hostra University in Long Island, NY.

The second must-watch is going to happen a day later. Thursday´s edition of The Letterman Show will – finally – be stage for John McCain, who opposed the host a month ago with canceling a scheduled appearance. Due to immediate handling of the financial crisis or the bad condition of the own campaign, this all might be true – but giving CBS´s colleague Katie Couric at the same time aroused good old Letterman, making him feel like an “ugly date“. Revenge to come on Thursday?

While Sarah Palin seems to take a break from recent talk show experiences, Joe Biden will make it to the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno“, also on this week´s Thursday.
