Join us for the debate as well as live-stream commentary before and after from ABC News and Yahoo!; breaking coverage of the night's most buzzy moments; a live poll gauging your reaction to what the presidential candidates are saying; and a live blog, anchored by Yahoo News deputy editor Chris Suellentrop, that you can join in, too. Get it all here.
