*Monday - How do the presidential candidates differ on military spending, the global economy, and trade?

Military spending in the U.S. ($623 billion) exceeds the rest of the world combined, yet the candidates are rarely, if ever, asked about it. On Monday, the Pentagon will release its proposed 2009 budget of $515.4 billion. The Bush administration has increased baseline military spending by 30 percent. Will this change under an Obama or Clinton administration?
