NEW YORK — Maybe it’s a cliché to say the gloves came off in Tuesday’s presidential debate. But then again, maybe not, since the candidates sometimes looked like they were actually about to start boxing. It was a tense and testy exchange at New York’s Hofstra University, featuring a newly energized and forceful President Barack Obama squaring off against a vigorous, stand-your-ground Mitt Romney.
