We need to temper our expectations for the next debate based on the structure f the debate format. While we all would like to see President Obama replicate VP Biden's performance. the Town Hall format is not conducive to such behavior. I want to see President Obama answers to be thought and substantive, respond to the Challenger forcefully and Riposte (fencing term-immediate attack) when confronted with a falsehood, while remaining presidential. He will be answering questions from the audience and should be more relax and confident, since he will not be required to look at the challenger.
