Moderator Schieffer has long tenure in Washington

(CNN) - Monday night's debate moderator, Bob Schieffer, is CBS News' chief Washington correspondent and has been the host of the Sunday morning discussion show "Face the Nation" since 1991.

His official CBS biography says Shieffer is one of the few journalists who have covered all four major Washington beats: the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department and Congress. He has covered every presidential race and nominating convention since 1972.

    Cue whining and complaining from the right since he along with the others will keep things in line, unlike Flip who only wants to do things in typical GOP way or the highway
