President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney had their final presidential debate last night at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida. (Here's a transcript of the debate via the Washington Post.) It was a foreign policy debate, but the candidates revealed the blurry distinction between foreign and domestic policy by talking about the economy and investments in "clean" energy and education.
In Obama's closing remarks, the president did not give grand policy visions, instead asserting that he had a plan to prevent the outsourcing of jobs, and also repeated his desire for a federal program that encourages the hiring of more math and science teachers. Romney spoke perhaps vaguely in his closing statement, stating that he would be the candidate to "work across the aisle" with both parties.
