The Uni­ver­sity of Mis­sis­sippi is gear­ing up to host the first pres­i­den­tial de­bate of 2008.

For­eign pol­icy and na­tional se­cu­rity is­sues will be the fo­cus of the much-an­tic­i­pated show­down be­tween Repub­li­can Sen. John McCain and Demo­crat Sen. Barack Obama, af­ter which a good many of the coun­try’s un­de­cided vot­ers are ex­pected to lineup be­hind one of the two ma­jor-party candidates.

Mean­while, D.C.-based re­porters who won’t be on the Ox­ford, Miss., cam­pus for the Sept. 26 de­bate are be­ing in­vited into the Na­tional Press Club to watch the po­lit­i­cal action un­fold.

Says press club or­ga­niz­ers: “Our new jumbo TV screens will show ev­ery frown, eye-roll and smirk — not that we ex­pect any, of course!”
