The October (anti-climatic) Surprise has arrived: Iran, U.S. agree to nuclear talks

The October Surprise has arrived and it so anti-climatic, it is bound to disappoint those hoping for an Israeli military strike or some other apocalyptic event.

The United States and Iran have agreed for the first time to one-on-one negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program, according to Obama administration officials, setting the stage for what could be a last-ditch diplomatic effort to avert a military strike on Iran, reports the New York Times

News of the agreement — a result of intense, secret exchanges between American and Iranian officials that date almost to the beginning of President Obama’s term — comes at a critical moment in the presidential contest, just two weeks before Election Day and a day before the final debate, which is to focus on national security and foreign policy.

Exactly how can Romney maneuver at the final debate against a President who killed Osama and has now brought Iran to the negotiating table?
