Lehrer Discusses Contours Of Presidential Debate Jim Lehrer has moderated ten presidential debates in his lifetime. But as he approaches his responsibilities as the host of the first go-around between Barack Obama and John McCain, his nerves aren't any calmer than when he first did this.

The first debate is one week from today.
