For candidates, all debate prep, all the time

(CNN) – Two days before the first presidential debate, perhaps it's no surprise how Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama are spending their day.

Romney will spend Monday in private meetings and debate prep sessions before heading to Denver for a campaign rally, his spokesman Rick Gorka said.

President Barack Obama is holed up in Nevada making similar preparations for Wednesday's big event. The only event listed on his schedule Monday? The Presidential Daily Briefing, conducted in private.

CNN's Rachel Streitfeld contributed to this report.

    I think both are qualified for the 400K a yr. Job – but under the romney regime, the poor will be extinct – the middle class will be poor – if you don't make over 75K per yr, (per household) you will have to watch your pennies.
    Vote Democrat – 2012 ( for the "working" middle class)
