In a night otherwise devoid of gaffes, debate moderator Bob Schieffer did have one slip-up.
When beginning the debate segment on Pakistan, Schieffer discussed how Pakistan had arrested the doctor who had aided the United States in killing Osama bin Laden. However, he flubbed his words.
Schieffer continued on and did not correct himself. Others have made a similar mistake before, including deceased Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.).
Schieffer, a veteran CBS newsman and the host of “Face the Nation,” generally appeared to be winning accolades for his performance during the third and final presidential debate.
