From Patch.com:

There was Big Bird. Then there was “malarky.” And now there are “binders full of women.”

While these comical word choices for the presidential and vice presidential candidates have been making headlines over the past few weeks leading up to the November debate, Pace University students in Pleasantville were more concerned with divisive issues Tuesday night.

While tuning into the Hofstra University Town Hall style presidential debate, students and faculty at the campus laughed at some of President Barack Obama’s retorts, “Ooohed” at Mitt Romney’s attacks and took a critical look at the debate as a whole.

Following the just over hour-and-a-half long exchange, moderated by CNN’s Candy Crowley, Pace students dissected the candidates’ responses and strategies.

The two candidates will meet a final time before the November 6 election on Monday, Oct. 22.

The last Presidential debate watch party was covered by Scott Salotto from WABC news radio/Imus in the Morning.
