Having covered every White House race and convention since 1972 hasn’t appeared to calm Bob Schieffer’s nerves when it comes to the presidential debates.
CBS’s “Face the Nation” host is poised to serve as moderator Monday night at the final debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney, in Boca Raton, Fla.
Schieffer, 75, added with a laugh about the final debate of the election season, “So I guess that’s my worst nightmare. But don’t worry, I have plenty [of questions].”
The Texas-born political journalist calls the debates “a good thing,” saying, “Our politics are so polarized now that when you can get people from both sides to watch the same event, it’s kind of a neat deal.”
