Video: Stephen Colbert Says U.S. Needs a President with "Well-Honed Sense of Zing"

While the Romney and Obama campaigns play down expectations for tonight's presidential debate, Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert gave his own take.

Colbert claimed that the key to winning the debate and the election will be “zingers."

Colbert said: “Because Americans need to know that their leader has a well-honed sense of zing. On day one, our new president must be able to face Iran’s leader and ask him if the place where he bought that shirt also has a men’s department.”
