Things picked up speed Wednesday evening as time began to run out, with the two candidates rushing through closing remarks. Obama went first, saying he recognized his own imperfections, but has the drive to affect change. “Four years ago I said I’m not a perfect man and I won’t be a perfect president and that’s probably a promise Governor Romney thinks I’ve kept." Romney countered by warning that under a second Obama term there will be "dramatic cuts to the military." But the biggest hit of the debate was Big Bird: Romney proposed big cuts but promised to keep Sesame Street.
