Fox News' Chris Wallace is 'jealous' of the final presidential debate

Jeva Lange

One thing is for sure: Thursday night's presidential debate was a far more civil and — dare we say — normal event than the first. Moderated by NBC's Kristen Welker, the candidates stayed more or less on topic, something the first debate's moderator, Fox News' Chris Wallace, didn't fail to notice.

Asked for his response to the second and final debate, Wallace said: "First of all, I'm jealous. I would've liked to have been able to moderate that debate and get a real exchange of views instead of hundreds of interruptions."

"I thought it was a good debate," Wallace went on. "A good, substantive debate. Two very competing visions for the country."
