At the Streema Blog we generally cover major events, so this time we want to bring the 2012 U.S. Presidential Debates.
The Presidential Debates in the U.S. are usually held at large halls (in a university, for example) with citizens in the audience and journalists as moderators. It's important to remark that although the Debates are not constitutionally mandated, they are already part of the election process. The topics are usually the most relevant of the current agenda, and the Presidential Debates this year are particularly more interesting globally since one of the main topics is foreign policy. Before the elections there will be a total of four debates, three of them between presidential candidates and one of them between their respective vice presidential candidates.
So, tomorrow Tuesday 16, at 9 p.m. Eastern Time, the 3rd debate is happening and it's between the US President Barack Obama (Democrat Party) and the former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (Republican Party). To listen to it on radio, most of the Public Radios in the US will broadcast the event, but you can particularly try the following ones:
In case you've missed the previous debates, during the first half of October we already had two of them, the first on Oct 3rd between the presidential candidates and the last on 11th between the Vice Presidents - current Vice President Joe Biden (Democrat) and Wisconsin U.S. Representative Paul Ryan (Republican).
So, tomorrow October 16th will be the third and the next (and last) one will be on October 22 (also 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time). Be sure to listen (or see) to them if you get the chance!
After that, the elections will happen on November 6 and we hope you follow them on radio too. :D
