Job interviews for president: Lessons from the debates
Throughout October, two men are appearing on three different stages on three different nights, amid support and jeers, to defend their merit to a nation of more than 300 million people. Their responses are being broadcasted by every major news network and their every word, every gesture, every sigh, every bead of ill-timed sweat are being scrutinized by pundits and commentators in a stream of media analysis. During each debate, each candidate will fight to prove that he is the best man for the job in one of the most nerve-wracking job interviews of his life. Only one will win on election day.
