FILE - In this Sept. 3, 2007, file photo Republican presidential hopeful, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, left, shakes hands with Democratic presidential hopeful, U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., at the Labor Day parade in Milford, N.H. Romney also crossed paths at the parade with another rising political star and presidential contender, Barack Obama, as both sought to line up votes in the New Hampshire primary. They shook hands, exchanged a few pleasantries and turned their attention to the voters. When they stand side by side on the presidential debate stage Wednesday night, Oct. 3, 2012, it will be one of the few times they have ever even met in person. (AP Photo/Jim Cole, File)
