Thousands of students, political wonks, local campaign volunteers,

faculty, and corporate bigwigs got together least evening to watch the

third and final Presidential debate at Lynn University in Boca Raton.

Guests who had a "golden ticket" to the event (actually it was a

plastic badge) parked at Town Center Mall and were bussed into the University, which was filled with Secret Service, large German Shepherds, and

assorted campus and local police. Once inside the grounds, a lucky few

pressed on to the actual debate. The rest of us were shepherded onto

the campus soccer field, which was turned into "President-a-palooza" for the evening.


Food

trucks, cable television and cell phone sponsors, and a large AARP

contingent were on hand to give out buttons, glow sticks (red, blue, or a

combination of both for undecideds), and signs.Though the candidates

were out of reach for the masses, there were photo ops

-- with cardboard cutouts of the two men vying for your vote.

Kudos go to the food trucks, who were slammed with hungry Romney and

Obama supporters in need of dinner before finding a spot on the lawn to

watch the debate. A few trucks seized the opportunity to offer special

"Obama" and "Romney"-inspired treats, while others preferred to serve up non-partisan bites.

Democrat, Republican, or

Independent there one thing we can all agree upon -- suppertime!

The staff of B.C. Tacos serving up tacos for the masses. Even though Romney's dad was born in Mexico, there were no special Romney-inspired tacos on the menu.

Since both candidates have been known to say some "cheesy" things, you could say that everything on Ms.Cheezious' menu was "politically inspired".

Feverish offered special Romney and Obama pops -- but shouldn't the coconutty pop belong to Obama as a homage to his being born in tropical Hawaii? Either way -- they're both delicious.

No debate here -- everyone loves free candy.

Looks like Obama's winning the Hip Pops poll. Obama's pop, by the way, was a mint chocolate chip gelato covered with semi-sweet Belgian chocolate. The Romney pop was a vanilla bean gelato dipped in Belgian chocolate and covered in Reeses' Pieces bits.
