Originally, the presidential debate last Friday was supposed to center on foreign policy issues. To be sure, there were some questions about Iraq, Iran, North Korea, and other international hot spots, but a significant portion of the 90-minute debate was devoted to the economy. (Over the weekend, if you picked up a newspaper, turned on the television, or listened to the radio, you were probably inundated with news about the bailout.)

Ted Koppel will join us, as he does most Mondays, to give us his insights into the news. We'll use the debate as a springboard to talk about the markets and foreign affairs. What questions do you have for him?
