    Someone once said, history repeats itself because no one was listening the first time. All one needs to do is look at the ever-widening ideological divide and partisan bickering going on in America to understand Americans are slow learners. And, unless a Lincolnesque figure rises to the occasion, America is headed for another Civil War sans the bloodshed.

    President Obama was on the ropes in the polls after the first presidential debate. After the second presidential debate, he hit the mat in the polls. And after the third presidential debate, he looks to be down for the count.

    There's a good chance that American voters will screw up the presidential election. "How could you say such a thing when in a democracy the people are, by definition, correct?" you ask.

    The foreign policy debate was not given much chance of being a game changer. No one really thought that a talk about the future of US-Myanmar relations was going to move the needle very much.

    Perhaps the most significant if unspoken argument for voters to settle on November sixth involves the bitter dispute over which candidate has lived the more virtuous, worthwhile, constructive life: Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?

    Smashing the enrichment facilities at Natanz and Fordow, writes Rothkopf, would mean "setting the Iranian nuclear program back many years, and doing so without civilian casualties."

    This week the final Presidential debate will focus on foreign policy. Conservatives have many great leaders on this front, including Richard Grenell. I was fortunate to meet him at the Republican National Convention in Tampa this year. Having followed his career and TV appearances, I jumped at the opportunity to interview him.

    Tonight's debate will center on foreign policy. The problem with foreign policy is that as President you just need so many of them. It's a big world. There are 193 members of the United Nations and 192 of them are not named The United States of America.

    After seeing the first two debates and awaiting the final one tonight, never has the choice for the American voter been clearer--the contrast is highlighted in bold colors. The future of America is in your hands.

    During Tuesday’s second presidential debate, we held a live focus group with the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) on my nationally-syndicated radio program. After the debate was over, the business owners expressed disappointment in both candidates’ performance.

    The ongoing collapse of President Obama's campaign may lead to some extraordinary stunts during Monday's last debate, but no matter what he tries, it is very unlikely that the president can reverse the enormous momentum behind Mitt Romney's campaign.

    The Obama campaign has to make this a comparison between the individuals - Barack Obama and Mitt Romney - and it has spent somewhere near a half BILLION dollars demonizing Romney.

    President Obama gave a vigorous defense during this week's presidential debate of his handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya -- but his answer could come back to haunt him. The natural instinct of most Americans is to rally round the president when they feel the country is under attack. But if they believe that the president has tried to mislead them, that support will dissipate quickly. Monday night's presidential debate could be that turning point.

    It was Clausewitz, the military strategist, who famously defined war as politics by other means. Politics in turn could be defined as history determined by other means. For each present political choice tends to come with its own view of the past. It would be hard to find a better example of that tendency than Tuesday night's presidential debate, which was not only a clash of candidates but of pasts.

    The Obama campaign made a coldly calculated decision early this year to go after the women's vote by attacking Mitt Romney on his right-to-life position.
