    Washington Week [#5214H] The consensus among most political observers is that Mitt Romney outperformed President Barack Obama in their first presidential debate at the University of Denver on Wednesday.
    Romney, who participated in 19 Republican primary debates since the start of 2011, seemed more comfortable and well-practiced. He didn't hesitate to attack the president on a myriad of issues including the deficit, jobs, healthcare and the economic recovery.
    President Obama, well-known for his communication skills, had his moments but seemed less aggressive and more reluctant to fire back at Mr. Romney during the 90-minute face-off.
    Throughout the debate both candidates relied on numbers to highlight their different approaches to Medicare reform, tax policy and financial regulations. But did the wonkier and more granular duel of ideas help either candidate or just leave voters confused?
    Gwen Ifill will examine the issues that were debated, the ones that weren't and what it tells us about the state of the race for the White House with: Peter Baker of The New York Times, Dan Balz of The Washington Post, Jeanne Cummings of Bloomberg News, and John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News.
