Ahead of tonight’s final presidential debate, we look back to Obama and McCain’s last face off in 2008, when references to “Joe the Plumber” helped catapult Joe Wurzelbacher to fame.
Three days before the debate, Wurzelbacher had a memorable exchange with Obama over taxes on small businesses during a campaign stop in Ohio. McCain seized the opportunity to highlight his differences with the Obama campaign, and helped “Joe the Plumber” become a household name.
