Obama again cites Israel, as having “a huge interest” in what unfolds in Syria.

Rettig Gur notes: Some strategy comments: The point in this debate is to look like the commander in chief, nothing more. Most viewers won’t follow the details. Obama has used the term “commander in chief” three times in 12 minutes, to my count. (And mentioned Israel twice.) Romney’s challenge is to look as though he’s on par with Obama, nothing more. 

Both men say Assad has to go; neither wants to get drawn into a military conflict in Syria.

Romney makes his first Israel mention — on the need to coordinate with Israel on Syria.
