In the first of three debates between presidential candidates, President Bush and Senator Kerry answered questions from Mr. Lehrer about foreign policy. Among the topics they addressed were operations in Iraq, efforts to combat terrorism, America’s standing with various allies, nuclear weapons proliferation, and which candidate was more qualified to lead the country through war.

The debate was presented in a full-screen format provided by the network pool showing candidates as they spoke with few shots as they reacted to their opponents' remarks. The debate format featured candidates standing behind podia with lights indicating time limitations for answers to the single moderator’s questions. Additionally candidates gave no opening statements and were not allowed to directly question one another. close
