Romney was very nervous. He was sweating and gesticulating. He was very nervous and uncomfortable.

No, they successfully made their liquid metal battery. They don't think they have started making money yet, since they probably haven't started selling them yet.

I think they may get nervous but they're also used to public speaking so perhaps not a much as you or I.

I would say the opposite. If they do not take this seriously enough to be nervous, they should not be president.

Having your job interview televised and having every little detail scrutinized has got to be nerve wracking.

It was a joke, because you know, Romney is a robot, and by the way you responded so are you!

Doesn't Obama have a battery company he "helped" in the stimulus... 249 million bucks and they're on the verge of bankruptcy.

Do athletes get nervous before the World Series or Super Bowl? I'm sure they get nervous, they are human. It just doesn't show because just like pro athletes, they practice and practice.

Romney's lapel flag is bigger than Obamas. Does that mean he is more patriotic?

Unlikely for veteran politicians. Think about it, after so many years at your job, do you get nervous?

It's their job to look strong so that their people are proud to represent them, but no man or woman is devoid of nervousness.

Of course. Their futures and the future of America is at stake. That would make anyone nervous.

I voted yes - but I'm not sure nervous is the right word. It's more like butterflies

I would think they wouldn't, if a debate makes you nervous, you shouldn't be the president.
