The Battle of Long Island: McCain and Obama Meet for Final Debate Showdown in New York

The original Battle of Long Island – you know, the one you learned about in history class, from way back in that memorable year of 1776 – was the largest battle of the entire Revolutionary War.

History is repeating itself tonight at 8:00 with the largest battle of the War for the White House: the final presidential debate of 2008, held at Hofstra University in Garden City, New York, just outside New York City.  Indeed, much is at stake in this final chance for the candidates to show their stuff – in Obama’s case, to maintain the considerable lead he has over McCain in the polls, and for McCain, to “recharge his candidacy.”

NYU students will be partnering with Current TV and for liveblogging during the debate, at locations including Hayden Hall.
