Come to the Bagdad to watch the vice presidential debate live on air with KOIN TV!

Sit in designated Democrat, Republican and Independent sections, do an interview on your perspectives with Mike Donahue or other KOIN talent and maybe even have a beer and some pizza while you watch.

Update: I scheduled this post on Tuesday night. Apparently, while I was at work today, McCain already became President and doesn't need to debate now. So…we'll see if these parties will still take place.

Also, I saw in the Mercury that they will be at Roots Brewing (1520 SE 7th Ave, Portland, OR 97214) for the first debate and Clinton Street Theater for the others.

Watch Online: If you can't make it out to one of these events, you can watch online at PBS.

    Time to accept a scripted Presidential “debate” yet again?
    Brought to you by your “good friends” on Wall Street.

    No USA Main Street Paul or Nader,
    nor Cynthia McKinney…

    Did you know that the McCain campaign (although supposedly suspended) has run ads in the Washington Post stating that McCain won the debate? Even tho we are still hours away from it happening? Hahaha…

    I agree with senator Obama that people should take more action with their health care and if they cant afford health care they should get help.
