Tonight on the program, we look back on last night's presidential debate as well as get two political perspectives on the candidates' tax plans. Also: a stray shell from Syrian government troops kills civilians in Turkey, Florida voters chime in on their reactions to the debate, how Twitter and Xbox were tied into the debate, and Miguel Cabrera captures baseball's first triple crown in 45 years.
