NAME:  MOHAMED RAJANI COURSE:  US NATIONAL POLITICS (PSC 100-B)  INSTRUCTOR:  PROF. OLIVIA O’DONNELL SUBMISSION DATE:  NOVEMBER 17 2008 THIRD PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE AT HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY, NEW YORK – OCTOBER 15  2008 The longest campaign in US political history reached its climax as presidential candidates  Barack Obama and John McCain came face-to-face for the final time before Americans voted  on Nov. 4. With previous debates lacking steam and knock-out policy jabs, Americans were  looking for substantial new information rather than the usual political back-and-forth.  But as widely expected and predicted in the media, neither candidate managed to  extraordinarily convince those yet-to-decide American voters. However, it was by far the most  productive of the three debates as moderator Bob Schieffer pressed the candidates on the  issues that mattered most to Americans. In context of the state of the race, however, and the positions of the candidates in national polls,  I felt Sen. Obama won the debate. It was more a situation of Sen. McCain losing the debate
