BOCA RATON, Florida -- President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney meet on the debate stage at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida Monday night, October 22nd for the final debate before voters take to the polls on November 6th. This debate will focus on foreign policy. Both President Obama and Mitt Romney will be looking for one last major victory before election day.
"I think tonight's debate is as important. It's about foreign policy -- as the last one was when it was about domestic policy. It's almost impossible to separate the two," UW-Milwaukee Professor of Governmental Affairs Mordecai Lee said.
Lee says the debate offers the candidates one final chance to capture undecided voters in key battleground states like Wisconsin.
"I think both of them are going to try to break away in the sense of this election truly is close. It's amazingly close and it's amazing that a couple thousand voters in Wisconsin might decide who the next president is," Lee said.
The 90-minute debate will focus on foreign affairs.
Republican Senator John McCain told FOX6 News Romney plans to focus on the Obama administration's perceived intelligence failures in Libya.
"It's simple, I think Mitt Romney says what did the President know? When did he know it? What did he do about it before, during and after?" Sen. McCain said.
General Wesley Clark says President Obama has a strong record on foreign affairs.
"He's been an extraordinarily strong commander-in-chief for the armed forces, going against someone who has no foreign policy experience and no military experience," Clark said.
Both Clark and McCain say the foreign policy issues related to the economy in Wisconsin.
"In Wisconsin it's going to be jobs and the economy -- and they really want to know what plan, vision does President Obama have for the future?" Sen. McCain said.
"What we do in foreign policy has a tremendous impact on our domestic politics. The debt that everyone seems quite concerned about was caused by a war we didn't have to fight in Iraq and a mishandled conflict in Afghanistan," Clark said.
"All they have to do is ask themselves, 'do I agree with this guy or do I disagree with this guy?" All you have to do is tally it up. 'I agreed with so-and-so more than I agreed with so-and-so,' and that's really powerful," Lee said.
Analysts say this debate may say more about which candidate can show they have the qualities of leadership.
