U.S. President Barack Obama (L) listens as moderator Bob Schieffer of CBS speaks during the debate with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney at the Keith C. and Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center at Lynn University on October 22, 2012 in Boca Raton, Florida. The focus for the final presidential debate before Election Day on November 6 is foreign policy.

Bob Schieffer never says never, but if Monday night's presidential debate was the last one he ever moderates, he’ll survive. He’s also not at all torn up about the fact that he accidentally called Osama bin Laden “Obama bin Laden.” Schieffer said Tuesday he didn’t even realize he’d made the slip-up until he read about it in the news and confirmed it with his wife. “I had no idea I said that,” Schieffer told Politico. “But what are you going to do?”
