LIVE Presidential debate tonight!

NBC's Emmy®-award-winning drama The West Wing will break new ground tonight with a live broadcast of a Presidential debate between Republican Senator Arnold Vinick of California (Alan Alda) and Democratic Congressman Matt Santos of Texas (Jimmy Smits). In fact, there will be two live debates, one for the east coast feed and another for the west coast feed. That means that at least three time zones worth of viewers will see a live debate at 8pm Eastern/Pacific, 7pm Central, possibly tape-delayed in other zones.

I'm hoping to get my hands on at least a transcript of the east coast debate, since I'll be watching the west coast feed here in San Francisco.
