With Barack Obama and Mitt Romney holed up in preparation for Monday night's third and final presidential debate, the two campaigns' top surrogates and advisers butted heads Sunday over Big Bird, Mr. Romney's "binders full of women" comment and a new word being used by the president on the campaign stump: "Romnesia."
