The Commission on Presidential Debates today announced the times and places for the three presidential and one vice-presidential debate to be held in October of 2012. These will, of course, feature President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden against whomever the Republicans finally settle on.
- Wednesday, October 3 — University of Denver, Denver, CO.
- Thursday, October 11 (Vice presidential debate) — Centre College, Danville, KY.
- Tuesday, October 16 (Town meeting format) — Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY.
- Monday, October 22 — Lynn University, Boca Raton, FL.
These were announced early so Rick Perry could start dreading them now, Mitt Romney can practice his flip-flops and Herman Cain can decide which song he will sing at each of the debates.
