up for their evening debatein the battleground state of Florida, their running mateswill be busy today seekingvotes in two of the eightother states whose up-for-grabs electoral votes willdetermine the next president— Vice President Joe Bidenin Ohio and Republican Rep.Paul Ryan in Colorado. Alsostill hotly contested: Iowa,New Hampshire, Nevada,North Carolina, Wisconsinand Virginia.Deputy campaign man-ager Stephanie Cutter saidtoday that “it really nowcomes down to that smallsegment of undecided vot-ers.”Appearing on NBC’s“Today” show, Cutter said,“The ground game is incredibly important at thispoint. We feel pretty goodabout where we are.”It fell to campaign surro-gates on Sunday talk showsto frame the foreign policymatters that moderator BobSchieffer will put before thecandidates in a discussionsure to reflect “how danger-ous the world is in which welive,” as the CBS newsmanput it. Iran’s nuclear inten-tions, the bloody crackdownin Syria, economic angst inEurope, security concerns inAfghanistan, China’s grow-ing power — all that andmore are on the agenda.On Iran, senior Romneycampaign foreign policyadviser Dan Senor said onNBC today that Romney’sapproach is that “we’ve gotto reach a diplomatic solu-tion.” He said the Obamaadministration’s policy onIran for the past four yearshas not discouraged Tehranfrom moving forward withits nuclear ambitions.On Libya, Senor said“they didn’t have the prop-er security” at the U.S.Consulate in Benghazi whereAmbassador ChristopherStevens and three otherswere killed on Sept. 11.The series of interviewsSunday and today fed intothe broader debate overwhich candidate offers thesteady hand and sound judg-ment for a nation facingmyriad challenges at homeand abroad.Florida Sen. MarcoRubio, arguing for theRepublicans, faulted Obamafor “his failure to outlinebroad goals, real goals, areal view of what America’srole in the world shouldbe.” Romney, by contrast,would “use America’s rolein the world as a catalyst forpeace, prosperity and free-dom,” he said.Ryan, campaigning inColorado Springs, Colo., onSunday, faulted the presi-dent for potential defensecuts and said that whenadversaries “see us project-ing weakness, when theysee us hollowing out ourmilitary ... they think we area superpower in decline.” Itwas a likely preview of oneof Romney’s arguments inthe debate.Obama adviser DavidAxelrod said that when thepresident took office “wewere isolated in our positionon Iran and in the world.And today, the world is uni-fied against Iran with us, allbecause of the leadership of this president.”The Obama campaignreleased a blistering memofrom Senate ForeignRelations CommitteeChairman John Kerry,D-Mass., accusing Romneyof offering nothing but “end-less bluster” on internationalissues.“He is an extreme andexpedient candidate wholacks the judgment andvision so vital for the OvalOffice,” said Kerry, who isconsidered a leading can-didate to succeed HillaryRodham Clinton as secre-tary of state if Obama winsa second term.When it comes to theirforeign policy credentials,both candidates have rea-sons for optimism andconcern: While foreignpolicy has been a strengthof Obama throughout thecampaign, some recent pollsshow his advantage nar-rowing. The Pew ResearchCenter’s October poll, forexample, found that 47 per-cent of Americans favoredObama to make “wise deci-sions about foreign policy,”while 43 percent preferredRomney.American Universityprofessor Jordan Tamasaid the difficult trick forRomney in the debate willbe to challenge Obama onforeign policy without look-ing like he’s criticizing thecommander in chief, whichcan be off-putting to voters.Obama, for his part, mustmake the case that his poli-cies are sound and his lead-ership strong despite ongo-ing challenges around theworld, including unrest inthe Middle East and the cha-otic situation in Libya thatleft four Americans dead.While foreign policy hasbeen overshadowed duringthis campaign by concernsabout the domestic economyand jobs at home, every-thing matters in a race thistight. A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll releasedSunday showed each candi-date favored by 47 percentof likely voters, reflecting aboost of support for Romneyfollowing his strong perfor-mance in the first debate inearly October.With early voting underway in many states, thereis precious little time forthe candidates to breakloose. More than 4 millionAmericans already havevoted.

HONOLULU — A photo-graph of a 93-year-old WorldWar II veteran casting whatwill likely be his last ballothas captured the hearts of tensof thousands of Internet users.The photo shows FrankTanabe lying in a hospitalbed at home as his daughterBarbara Tanabe helps him fillout his absentee ballot. A half-million people saw the pictureon the website Reddit afterhis grandson posted it thereon Thursday, making it oneof the most popular items onthe social media network fora day after.“True Patriotism,” was thetop rated comment on the post.“This is America. Amen,” wasnext, followed by “Thank you,Citizen.”Doctors diagnosed Tanabewith an inoperable cancertumor in his liver two monthsago. He’s been in hospice carefor the past three weeks at hisdaughter’s home. His condi-tion has been deteriorating,and he’s been speaking littlelately.He’s been determined tovote regardless, eagerly ask-ing when the ballot wouldbe arriving in the mail, hisdaughter said. She kept tellinghim, “don’t worry, it’s com-ing.” He filled it out imme-diately when it landed in themailbox on Wednesday.Barbara Tanabe read aloudthe names of the candidatesto her dad. He either nodded“yes” to the names or shookhis head “no.” She filled in theboxes on his behalf, follow-ing his instructions even whenhe didn’t pick the people shewanted.“There were some thatwere OK, but there were oth-ers where I said, ‘Dad, are yousure?”’ she said.But he knew what he wasdoing. He’s kept up on theissues, reading newspapersregularly until only recently,she said.Tanabe volunteered to jointhe Army from behind barbedwire at the Tule Lake intern-ment camp in California. Hewas pulled out of college atthe University of Washingtonand taken to the campwhen President Franklin D.Roosevelt ordered 110,000Japanese-Americans detainedand isolated after the start of the war with Japan.The Army assigned Tanabeto the Military IntelligenceService, a classified unit whosemembers were collectivelyawarded the CongressionalGold Medal last year alongwith soldiers who served inthe 100th Infantry Battalionand 442nd Regimental CombatTeam — highly decoratedsegregated units of mostlyJapanese-Americans.“I’d like to accept on behalf of all hyphenated Americans,including American-Americans,” Tanabe told theHonolulu Star-Advertiserat the time. “We all servedtogether in defense of ourcountry.”
