Al Gore, stung by criticism of his performances in the previous two televised presidential debates, finally went on the attack in Tuesday's final debate at Washington University.

Gore seemed more comfortable during the event and at one point walked directly over to his opponent, George Bush, and directly challenged him on health policy.

"If you want someone who will support the big drug companies, this is your man," Gore said, standing next to his rival. "If you want someone who will fight for you then I want to fight for you."

However, Bush did try to fight back, saying "I think after three debates, the good people of this country understand there is a difference. The difference between a big federal government and someone who is coming from outside Washington who will trust individuals."

Polls taken immediately after the debate either said that Gore had put in the better performance or put the result level.
