Presidential debate schedule and video

This link may be helpful for professors, students and members of the general public. http://www.youdecide2008.com/2007/06/13/full-2008-debate-schedule-from-dnc-and-gop/ is a website that hosts the Presidential debate schedule as well as video of these debates. Since Media Services has to delete off-air recording of programs after 45 days, this is a great resource for anyone who wants to watch these debates after this time frame.
