Last night at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney faced-off in their second of three debates. The town hall-style debate without lecterns and a close-up audience made the impact of their body language even more important. Voters have to like the "vibe" of their candidate and the nonverbal is a huge chunk of this very human emotional assessment. The video above is the full debate. Here is some of my guest commentary on Southern California Public Radio (NPR) KPCC sizing of portions of their nonverbal communication.
