Follow along tonight as we track mentions of war, the housing crisis, jobs, health care, and cultural issues like women's health during the first presidential debate.

For tonight's debate, HuffPost is bringing back our Convention Mention Meter, a tool that our Off The Bus contributors used to track specific phrases during both the Republican and Democratic conventions. We looked at whether Michelle Obama or Ann Romney talked more about their husband, the candidate praise ratio, how often the economy was mentioned, and what speech patterns emerged over the course of the conventions.

Will we hear more about housing, jobs, war, health care, or zingers?

Tell us in the comments your predictions and other categories we should consider for next week's debate.

What you think is the most pressing issue that the candidates are not talking about?
