If you're planning to watch the presidential debate tomorrow night, especially if you're still on the fence about which candidate will get your vote, I beg you to do something for me.

Turn off your TV the very second the debate ends.

Take a few hours on your own to think about what you've heard from each candidate. Let yourself sleep on it before you read or listen to a word of spin. In fact, I'd strongly recommend avoiding any outside influence from the campaigns or the media until after you've had your morning coffee on Friday.

As rehearsed and prepared for this event as these guys will be, and despite the fact that "debate" in the true sense of the word will be limited by the ground rules the two camps have set up, ultimately it's still two men standing on their own and making their best cases for why they should be entrusted with the highest office in the land for the next four years. We owe it to ourselves to make up our own minds about what we witness over those ninety minutes.
