Debate: Round 3

John McCain is looking to give his campaign a needed boost in tonight's final presidential debate with Barack Obama at Long Island's Hofstra University.

The sit-down forum moderated by CBS' Bob Schieffer will focus on pocketbook issues and domestic policy. Both candidates released proposals this week for how to boost the economy.

With polls favoring Obama in a growing number of states, the stakes in this last debate are higher for McCain. He unveiled a possible debate strategy yesterday: the argument that on the
economy, he'll be different from President Bush and better than Obama.
