Third, Final Presidential Debate: Who Won?

The debates are now over - who do you think finished strongest?

Holding their third and final debate at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida Monday night, President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney both took one last opportunity convince voters why they should support either candidate.

The topic of Monday night's debate focused on Foreign Policy. Tuesday morning, Patch will have flash survey results from Massachusetts political activists and leaders, both Republican and Democratic.

But now, with the third and final debate now over, what do you think? Who would you say 'won' this third presidential debate? Tell us in the comments sections below.

@Fiscal Conservative: "She'll then put all the blame on her husband for making her one of the "commoners" again." The Obamas will never be commoners again. They are now millionaires who never really have to work unless they want to. Their children will attend the best private schools. Obama can be like Clinton and go on speaking tours or campaign for other Democrats, if that appeals to him. He will always be a hero to many and can do a lot of good in that respect. The downside to it all is that they will never walk freely in a crowd again, nothing will ever be spur-of-the-moment. Secret service men will be assigned for the rest of their lives. Waters will no longer part for them. I hope they don't get bored.

INCORRECT, Emcee of Seekonk ~ The OBAMAS' will receive Secret Service protection for 10 years after leaving office, not for the rest of their lives.

All I meant was there won't be as many people cowtowing to her. She will be part of the elite, but, hopefully on her dime, not yours & mine.

Fiscal Conservative : "All I meant was there won't be as many people cowtowing to her. She will be part of the elite, but, hopefully on her dime, not yours & mine." You're right, ask any politican, it is tough to go back to that two family in Des Moines. Still, a la Clinton, they can sell a few pardons. It is tough for a lame duck president, without another term coming up, to get large "book advances". Wasn't it his pal Deval that got a $1.25 million "advance" on a book that sold 6,000 copies? What's that? $208 per book? How long are Americans going to buy pay offs/donations disguised as "book advances"?

@Dan Devine...You are correct about the Secret Service protection. "In 1997, legislation became effective limiting Secret Service protection to former Presidents and their spouses for a period of 10 years from the date the former President leaves office, making Bill and Hillary Clinton the last to receive lifetime protection." --Wikipedia
