Wednesday night is the first of three presidential debates between President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. It will focus on domestic policy. Viewers can expect questions and debate on taxes, jobs, medicare, healthcare, energy, immigration and the deficit. We asked people on the streets of Lincoln what topics they want to see talked about in this debate.

"I am concerned about healthcare for me and my family and my kids and my grandparents," said Drew Price of Lincoln.

"The biggest problem is probably the economy right now," said Richard Gude of Lincoln.

"Probably the economy and providing jobs," said Paul Pizzo of Lincoln.

"Whether it be the economy, jobs or taxes, whatever the case may be - substance. That's what we want to see, something for the words that they say," said Willis Sanders of Lincoln.

Some viewers are looking for the classic one liner that previous debates have sparked. Walter Mondale's classic line "where's the beef?" was memorable. Lloyd Bentsen's "You, sir are no Jack Kennedy." was another zinger that stuck in the minds of viewers.

The presidential debate will be held in Denver, CO, and is scheduled to start at 8:00 p.m. central time.

We will have your reaction from the debates on 10/11 News at Ten.
