Greetings one and all, and welcome back for US Election 2008's coverage of the third and final Presidential debate of this election cycle, from the campus of Hofstra University in Long Island, NY. This week, a confident Barack Obama leads in the national polls, but John McCain reckons he's got them right where he wants them. Only the next 3 weeks will tell for sure, but in the mean time tonight's debate represents the only scheduled occasion the two candidates will have to confront one another directly before the election.

We'll be here to highlight key points and ask some questions, but as always this is all about you, so join the fray and tell us what you think. And stay tuned for the post-debate insta-poll... we'll be asking you to tell us who you think won, and why.

$4,000 tuition credit for community service? Ooh. Intriguing idea. I wonder how that would work out if put into practice?

You'd probably still have a lot of kids working at jobs that pay more than $4,000 a year - even part time.

it would mean more students in college with fewer having to work at the expense of their schoolwork and more people getting a hands-on experience in a situation of need. more kids need that, even ones who don't "need" the money.

AmeriCorps! the Peace Corps! That's what it looks like right now. I'm currently an AmeriCorps VISTA and my heart goes all a-flutter when Obama talks community service.

McCain wtf?
We need a program where when someone is in the military, they can go right into teaching without taking any of those pesky exams? What?

Honestly, if I had a dime for every time I heard a teacher saying how much they hated No Child Left Behind...
