If the last debate was an indication, Obama and Romney will disagree a lot tonight. Our advice: Tread very carefully. While the core constituencies may love heated debates, swing voters do not. Remember, this is not about just winning a debate, but pushing a message and narrative that helps define your campaign for the final two weeks. Voters, especially swing voters, want to hear answers, not accusations. If the candidates behave as they did last week, you'll hear lots of complaints. More important, when it comes to foreign policy, no one has any tolerance for heated partisanship or blatant politics.
So, there you are.
We hope you'll watch, and please tune in to the AOL debate focus groups and see what undecided voters think of this final showdown and whom they are most likely to vote for on Nov. 6.
