Your political homework, done for you — Part 2: foreign policy

The first general-election debate between U.S. presidential candidates Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain is scheduled for this evening. While it’s nearly certain that much of the debate tonight will turn instead to the exigencies of the American economy, the nominal subject of this debate is foreign policy.

The debate is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. PDT, 9 p.m. EDT.

Don’t feel bad if you don’t know or can’t remember where Obama and McCain stand on the issues — the National Journal has done your homework for you.
