Presidential Candidates Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama will meet to debate on issues of foreign affairs, the economy, employment, education and hopefully much more. The debate held at Hofstra University and moderated by CBS anchor Bob Schieffer will begin shortly. Americans at home, in the audience and around the world are waiting to see how the candidates will stand on our countries most dire concern: the U.S. economy. Today the Dow Industrial Average closed down 733 points, the employment rate is suffering like it hasn’t in years and families are being foreclosed on in record numbers.
