Obama, Romney clash in final debate

President Obama and Mitt Romney met tonight for their third and final debate, the last chance for them to make their case to win the 2012 general election before a large audience.

The incumbent Democrat and his Republican challenger sat down - literally - for 90 minutes at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., in a debate sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates. Bob Schieffer of CBS News moderated the session, which featured a roundtable discussion between the three focused on foreign affairs.
