WATCH: The Last Obama-Romney Presidential Debate

Bob Schieffer moderates the foreign policy debate held at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida.

Check out Mother Jones DC bureau chief David Corn talking about why this debate probably won’t be as pivotal as most pundits say. And Kevin Drum on the foreign policy version of “Moderate Mitt.” Adam Serwer writes that Romney hasn’t said exactly what he’d do with the State Department, but we can surmise it won’t be pretty. If you’re curious how Romney views the Israel-Palestinian problem, you can watch this. And for any remaining questions, head over to our reader’s guide to the foreign policy debate. 


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
