It’s great that there are so many different options to watch the debate. This gives all the undecided voters out there the opportunity to make an informed decision at the voter booth next month. I haven’t seen the debate yet since I work nights at DISH, but I recorded it on my Hopper so I can watch it later. The huge amount of hard drive space on my DVR helps me keep up with shows when I have time for TV. I can’t believe there’s only presidential debate left, but it’ll be an interesting one since it deals exclusively with foreign policy.

Why would any woman vote for Romney? Romney opposed the equal pay for equal work act (Lily Ledbetter Act) for women. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2012/oct/16/barack-obama/obama-mitt-romney-refused-say-whether-he-supports-/ Romney favors the Blunt Amendment that would deny contraception coverage for women. http://bostonglobe.com/news/politics/2012/10/17/president-obama-tries-capitalize-women-issues-after-second-debate-with-mitt-romney/BYFJOuHtDdcaNeGIWVajcN/story.html Romney favors a “personhood” constitutional amendment that would define “life” as beginning at contraception, and could make abortion illegal. When asked to clarify his support, he answered, “Absolutely.” http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/03/democrats-target-romney-on-reproductive-rights/ He falsely said at the second debate that he sought "binders of women" profiles to find women to hire as governor, but, in reality, he was forced to use binders and pledge to use them. http://www.cnn.com/2012/10/17/opinion/cardona-binders-women/index.html http://hosted2.ap.org/MANOR/4e06196a1f11442a96197ec8174afd24/Article_2012-10-17-Romney-Binders/id-8a8f6924b6e643c9875aa4a319f4e643 Romney would be COMPLETELY WRONG for women and our GREAT NATION! Obama's position on each of these issues is totally OPPOSITE of Romney and IS PRO-WOMEN.
