It was a rematch for President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney as they met for the second presidential debate -- this time a town hall format -- on Tuesday night, and AOL had it covered on several fronts.

Our streaming news network ran wall-to-wall coverage and analysis before and after the debates.
On Daily Finance, pollster Frank Luntz and democratic strategist Chris Kofinis were back with exclusive analysis about the town hall format, one that's been tricky for candidates in the past. They pointed out the pitfalls Obama and Romney needed to avoid, like when President George H.W. Bush looked at his watch during the 1992 town hall with Bill Clinton.
During the debate, Daily Finance pulled clips of crucial moments and posted them online where they were used by AOL.com, such as:
When President Obama slammed Mitt Romney's plan for gas prices, saying it could plunge the country back into a recession.
And when President Obama said he'd kept all of his 2008 campaign commitments, or has, at least, tried to.
HuffPost Politics once again ran a live blog featuring real-time coverage alongside editor insights, fact-checks of the candidates' claims, and polls from around the Web.
HuffPost Media noted town hall moderator Candy Crowley sparring with Romney over answer time and live fact-checking him on a Libya question.
In addition to asking its readers who won the second presidential debate of 2012, Patch scored interviews with former New York Governor George Pataki, former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge and US Senator from South Carolina Jim DeMint who offered Mitt Romney some debate advice.
