>> the debates are in the books, and they have made things like big bird and binders full of women hot topics online. last night the president was trending for that line about horses and bayonets.
>> how do you know something is about to enter the cultural phenomenon ? you look at twitter, of course, and it became the most tweeted moment of the night, helping drive a total, i can't believe this, of more than 6.5 million tweets.
>> but you knew it as you heard it.
>> when the line came out, whether it was practiced or spontaneous you knew that would be something that people would talk about. another common theme online, reaction to governor romney's apparent agreement with president obama on a lot of issues, take a look.
>> i want to underscore the same point the president made. the president was right. i believe as the president indicated and said at the time that i supported his action there. i congratulate him. i felt the same as the president did.
>> i guess you could say it's nice to see the candidates agree about some things two weeks before election day , and the other line was one to research. i love teachers. governor romney used that phrase several times as he turned from foreign policy to domestic issues. mod raider bob schieffer quipped i think we all love teachers. no question that they both took the foreign policy debate to domestic issues.
>> a programming note, brian williams is joining president obama for a series of interviews over the course of two days on the campaign trail. can you see those interviews. wednesday here on "today" and "nightly news" and thursday night on "rock center."
