Candidates Appear on ’60 Minutes’ in Pseudo-Preview of Debate

The first presidential debate is just over a week away, but that doesn’t mean the two parties haven’t already started preparing.

Both GOP nominee Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama appeared on CBS’ “60 Minutes” on Sunday night, giving Americans a likely preview of the upcoming debate.
