Hello Washington: US Presidential Election: Issues & Personalities


The U.S. presidential election is less than three weeks away.The U.S. economic crisis is expected to dominate the third and final presidential debate tonight (Wednesday night) between Republican candidate John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama.

The two senators face different challenges in the face-off at Hofstra University in New York before U.S. voters elect a new president. McCain is seeking to re-charge his campaign after falling behind in opinion polls to Obama. For his part, Obama is trying to avoid any costly mistakes and maintain his momentum. Obama has sought to link McCain to the unpopular incumbent president, Republican George Bush, while McCain has portrayed Obama as too liberal and too inexperienced. The U.S. financial meltdown has helped propel Obama in the polls nationally and in key battleground states, with many voters apparently trusting him more than McCain to deal with the economy.
