Hello Washington: US Presidential Debate


Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain faced-off Friday night in the much-awaited first U.S. presidential debate of the 2008 general election. Up until Friday morning, it was unclear if the debate in Oxford, Mississippi, would even take place, as Senator McCain called for a delay to return to Washington and address the U.S. financial crisis. Senator Obama said he would be at the venue regardless.

Two more presidential debates are scheduled -- October 7th and October 15th. The vice presidential nominees, Republican Sarah Palin and Democrat Joe Biden, will face-off October second.
