If you're looking for a place to watch the first (and only) Vice Presidential debates tonight, you can check out Debate Watch. This site, sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates, can help you find a place to watch all the debates this fall, in Illinois, or anywhere in the country. Events range from informal gatherings you can plan yourself, or larger public viewings. You can also head to the site to read transcripts from past debates (Stockdale at his best!), get tips on getting people involved in debate watching, and download a debate viewer's guide.
