'The Choice 2012': Who Are Mitt Romney and Barack Obama?

Atlantic national correspondent James Fallows answers your questions about the election and a new Frontline documentary.

National correspondent James Fallows wrote a definitive analysis of the Obama presidency -- policy, politics, style, and legacy -- for the March 2012 issue of the magazine, now available as an ebook with additional commentary. As Frontline rolls out its two-hour documentary The Choice 2012, about Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, and the the 2012 campaign, it asked Fallows to join several other presidential chroniclers, including David Maraniss, Jodi Kantor, and Jason Horowitz to discuss the race. Today's live-chat starts at 1:30 p.m. with the filmakers, and Fallows will join in at 2 p.m. You can ask questions below now.
