How to Watch and Listen to Tonight's Final Debate between Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman

If there's a gubernatorial debate to watch, it's the one tonight. And, well, it's the last one between Democrat & Attorney General Jerry Brown and Republican & former eBay CEO Meg Whitman. Expect it to be fiery, not just because the distractions -- Whitman's undocumented housekeeper and Brown's "whore" controversy -- are front and center, but because veteran newsman Tom Brokaw is moderating.

Brokaw plans to keep the two on point and hopefully he has them stick to the issues. But good can a debate be with a moderator who lives in Montana? This week he told the San Francisco Chronicle that he's no "patsy" and has been following the race. He's also no stranger to the state: his early reporting days were spent in Los Angeles (he covered Brown in the 1966 election) and his immediate family lives in Orange County and San Francisco.
