Romney campaign sets expectations for foreign policy debate

(CBS News) Mitt Romney spent the weekend preparing to square off with President Obama for the last time -- the candidates will meet Monday night for a foreign policy debate at Lynn University in Florida.

According to CBS News' Jan Crawford, Romney advisers expect this debate to strike a different tone than the last town hall style debate. They expect Obama to be less aggressive and the format will be different, with both candidates seated around a table.

The Romney campaign says the topic -- foreign policy -- naturally favors the incumbent candidate but that Romney will seek to prove that Obama's foreign policy in the Middle East is unraveling and to raise questions about security issues at the U.S. Consulate in Libya.
