Obama and Romney to star in presidential-debate trilogy

Don’t look for podiums, opening statements or surprise topics at the debates if President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney follow the plan organizers released Wednesday.

Moderators for the televised events are set to be announced in August. READ FULL STORY
