In case you were wondering how big a deal the economy is, just check out the list of topics for the first presidential debate.
Each of these subjects will get a 15-minute segment in the Oct. 3 debate, though not necessarily in this order:
* The Economy – I
* The Economy – II
* The Economy – III
* Health Care
* The Role of Government
Jim Lehrer of PBS, who is moderating the debate, released the list.
