 Russia did come up a few times in the Oct. 22 exchange, with Republican Romney criticizing Democrat Obama of being soft on the obstructionism of Vladimir Putin and Obama accusing his opponent of trying to drag America back to the Cold War.

But that was about it in the 90-minute debate for Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, reflecting the higher priority that America is placing on economic conflicts with China and the Middle East and Asia, particularly terrorism and managing relations with nations in turmoil, including Syria, Egypt, Iran, Libya and Afghanistan.

Obama and Romney went into their third and final debate tied in the polls. Initial reaction gave the night to Obama, but whether that translates into enough support to win re-election will be known only after the polls close on Nov. 6.
