The other candidates, the other debate

(CNN) – On Tuesday night presidential candidates will lock horns in a debate in Chicago. The participants are not Republican or Democrat. They're third party candidates.

At tonight's debate: Jill Stein (Green Party), Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party), Virgil Goode (Constitution Party) and Rocky Anderson (Justice Party), all of whom have received little attention during this election. They're working to change that by pushing a message that focuses on issues that they believe are being ignored by Democrats and Republicans.

(CNN) – Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, who played the role of Mitt Romney in the president's debate prep, said Romney changed some of his foreign policy positions in the final presidential showdown.

Romney's immigration policy would add a hiring hurdle

New York (CNNMoney) – Mitt Romney promises less regulation on small businesses, but the immigration plan he supports would add an extra step to the hiring process.

Romney has said the nation should follow immigration rules like those in Arizona, where companies are forced to use a federal government program called E-Verify. Business owners are required to check the legal status of all new workers against Social Security and immigration records.

VIDEO: Portman: Romney's harmony with Obama pleased undecided voters

(CNN) – Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio, who played the role of the president in debate prep for Mitt Romney, said Tuesday he appreciated the Republican nominee's moments of agreement with his opponent during the debate.

"I thought when Governor Romney did that, it was refreshing for a lot of undecided voters who are tired of the attacks back-and-forth and the politics," Portman said on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien." "Look when Governor Romney thought that the president was right, he said so."

Biden, Ryan disagree about agreeing

(CNN) - The morning after the final debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, Vice President Joe Biden claimed Monday night's presidential showdown lacked one crucial element: an actual debate.

"It's fair to say that the debate has evaporated," Biden said Tuesday morning. "Back when I was debating Congressman Ryan, there were these massive disagreements on everything about Syria, Libya, Egypt, et cetera. And now, it's like - I don't know - there was a conversion that took place here."
