New In 2010: The Takeaway

After each debate, political analysts Dr. Jim Weatherby, Dr. Steve Shaw, and special guests stayed on for The Takeaway: Post-Debate Analysis.

The pundits offered context for the candidates' positions on the issues as well as their take on how the candidates performed. Audience members and often the candidates themselves joined in with questions and comments.

Watch the debate, then watch The Takeaway.
