New York (CNNMoney) - The nature of campaigning is to make promises. The nature of governing makes it hard to keep all those promises. And so do unforeseen events, like recessions.
That may be why even those who broadly favor the kind of tax reform that Mitt Romney is proposing - lower tax rates, fewer tax breaks - worry that his $5 trillion plan might not deliver all that he's promised.

(CNN) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton brushed off speculation that the controversy over last month’s consulate attack in Libya could thwart her chance at the White House should she decide to run for president in 2016.

HEMPSTEAD, New York (CNN) - President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney face off Tuesday in the second of their three debates, this one in a town hall-style setting in which they'll take questions from likely voters.
The stakes couldn't be higher: Obama must get his campaign back on track after a poor performance in the first debate that left Democrats demoralized and Obama's lead evaporating both in national polls and those in key battleground states. For Romney, who polls among voters showed won the first debate overwhelmingly, a second strong performance would boost his momentum going into the third debate next Monday and the final two weeks before Election Day.
Here are five things to watch for on Tuesday:
Washington (CNN) - The expectations are very different for Obama vs. Romney, Round 2. And the stakes are enormous.
Democrats are nervous. A race many of them thought was a lock just a few weeks ago is now a dead heat, the momentum with the other side.
