Here are a few recommended blogs for following the debate.
One of the most well read American blogs is the Huffington Post which of course has extensive coverage. This includes videos and links to news stories and polls. Some of which are serious others not so!
Real Clear Politics also aggregates key blogs. Scroll down the page for transcripts of key political speeches and round ups of blog postings.
