What are some of the prominent economic issues at hand? To what extent does each candidate talk about the source/cause of an economic problem? Do they offer a solution? Is it convincing/plausible?
Are there any social issues on the table? (i.e. abortion, health care, gay marriage, etc.) How does each candidate offer a vision to how these social debates should be resolved?
And here's the kicker (I totally recognize that we will NOT be in agreement with each other on this one, and that's okay).
Which candidate was more convincing? Which appeared to be offering facts and details rather than soundbites?
