Ready for Round Two, Truthseekers?  Obamaromney: TheSequel? Will the Empire Strike Back?

Ready or not, here they come . . . slouching toward Long Island, donning their BIG flag pins and gearing up their game faces for another 90-minute face-off to decide who will reside in the White House next year.

Move over Honey Boo-Boo, tonight's Town Hall is expected to rake in record-numbers of viewers who'll tune in to see if President Obama can regain his mojo; if Mittens can relate to the average American; and if Candy Crowley will wander off the reservation and start making up her own questions and/or phoning in a mid-debate order to Pizza Hut.

If you're among the wistful watches, what can you expect tonight?  Will Willard continue his media-fueled forward momentum?

Ezra Klein, writing for the The Washington Post, put this spin on Obama's off-kilter performance in Round One:

"If President Obama's first debate did nothing else, it sure lowered expectations for his performance in the second debate...On the eve of Tuesday night's second presidential debate at Hofstra University, voters are divided as to which candidate they think will do the better job: 41% say Obama will do better, while 37% expect Romney to prevail. This stands in stark contrast to expectations prior to the first presidential debate two weeks ago, which voters expected Obama to win by a 51%-29% margin."

And the Wall Street Journal added this about what we might see tonight:

"President Barack Obama and his Republican rival, Mitt Romney, enter their debate Tuesday night with different goals than the last time they met: Mr. Romney will try to build on growing strength among centrist voters that arose from his performance in the first debate, while Mr. Obama will aim to portray Mr. Romney as more conservative than his opponent has recently suggested...Aides said Mr. Romney has been focused in his debate preparations on how best to contrast his own policies with those of Mr. Obama on taxes, health care, Libya and other matters, while also connecting with voters."
