im Lehrer, the venerable host of NewsHour fame, has moderated ten presidential debates in his lifetime. But as he approaches his responsibilities as the host of the first go-around between Barack Obama and John McCain, his nerves aren’t any calmer than when he first did this.

“If you screw this thing up it isn’t like a television program where you can say, “Oh sorry, I’ll do better tomorrow,” Lehrer told the Huffington Post. “This has the potential for being one of the most exhilarating experiences a person can have and I’ve had it at times. But it also has the potential for being a negative experience too if you blow it because if you make a mistake as a moderator in one of these debates it could affect who becomes the next president of the United States.”¬† Source Article
