WASHINGTON (CNN) - The third and final presidential debate is shaping up to be a make-or-break appearance for both Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama, one of the last chances to get their message out to undecided voters.

The debate, taking place at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, begins at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday and will be aired live on CNN and CNN.com.

The 90-minute face-off will undoubtedly focus on the economic crisis plaguing the country. And unlike at the other two debates, the candidates will sit at a table facing one another.

CBS News' Bob Schieffer, host of "Face the Nation," will moderate the debate and told The Associated Press on Sunday that he will be seeking more on what each will bring to the presidency.

    CNN, I'm still at a loss as to why you publish disgraceful blogs like the one who says John McCain looks like "he is constipated." I would surely like to have an explanation when you refuse to post mine in this column. But it seems to me that this lower than low writing will cease only when this election is over. Then what will you do, CNN, when 50% of your viewers have gone south.
