We're live blogging tonight's debate, offering opinion and analysis from both sides. The debate season wraps up this evening in Boca Raton, Fla. with the third and final debate between President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. This time they'll be focusing on national security and foreign policy. The GOP nominee was the winner of the first debate by acclaim, and that victory propelled him into a lead in the polls. With President Obama having won the second debate according to the instant polls, the race seems to have stabilized again as a virtual dead heat in the horse race with the president retaining a narrow edge in key swing states.
