Key issues in 2012 presidential race - Article Photos 1/1

FILE - In this Oct. 18, 2012 file photo, President Barack Obama, right, and Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney exchange views during the second presidential debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y. The binders are long gone, but Mitt Romney's awkward phrase is likely to endure at least a little longer. The GOP nominee was trying to convey his commitment to hiring women when he spoke during one of the debates about demanding more potential job applicants when he was Massachusetts governor.
