(KSL News) Tonight John McCain and Barack Obama will engage in their final presidential debate ahead of the Nov. 4 election.

It really is both nominees' last chance to go after each other on key issues live, for 90 minutes, before the American public. But will they spend more time sparring over the issues or going after each other?

McCain is expected to launch character attacks against Obama, looking to strengthen a link to accused terrorist William Ayers. Political analysts aren't sure that message will resonate with voters.

"I think if McCain goes down that road, and some people are telling him to do it, he will hurt himself badly in that debate. It will be the end in all but name," said Democratic analyst Robert Shrum.

Ethan Millard from KSL Newsradio's The Nightside Project, and prominent political blogger, is joined us to discuss the debate in tonight's Talking Point.
