Tomorrow night (Friday), MPR is hosting a debate-watching party for the first presidential debate (Don’t RSVP, we’re full up.). This, of course, assumes there is a debate.
We’ve assemble a small panel of undecideds and after the program, MPR’s Jeff Horwich will be asking them to help analyze the performance and positions of Sen. Obama and Sen. McCain.
I’ll be live-blogging the event here on News Cut and I encourage you to engage in a discussion here starting at 8 p.m. Friday night. I’ve also set up a page on Twitter (@mpr_debates to follow those of you who may be posting your thoughts on Twitter during the debate.
If that describes you, please follow @mpr_debates on Twitter and we’ll be sure to display your thoughts during the party.
