The Other Side of the Debate

Tonight, we saw the first debate between the 2008 Presidential Candidates. CNN covered the debate, but did you realize that TV wasn’t the only place that you could watch it? LIVE had full coverage of the debate including a pre and post debate program. Their debate analysis was anchored by Nicole Lapin and Melissa Long.

Prior to the debate CNN Contributors Amy Holmes and Paul Begala discussed the impact of this debate and the expectations of the candidates.

Soledad O’Brien was with a group of voters in Ohio to get their immediate reaction to the debate using metering.

Once the debate started, you had a choice to make. The debate was being broadcast on two streaming live channels on One was very similar to what you would see if you were watching it on TV. The second stream had an enhanced look at the reaction from the group of voters in Ohio. He’s a close up look at the reaction … think of this as the entire debate in under 90 seconds…

During the post debate analysis, Melissa Long followed up with Amy Holmes and Paul Begala. Nicole Lapin spoke with another member of the Best Political Team Online (& on TV), Dana Bash.

If you missed the debate, have no fear. CNN has posted the video to their website (Part 1, 2, & 3) as well as a transcript.

The next debate (this one between the VP candidates) will be on Thursday at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.
