What Did Romney Have In His Pocket?

Interesting post from Litbrit: Mitt Romney seems to pull something out of his pocket at the beginning of the presidential debate.  This appears if you just watch the first 15 or so seconds of the official debate video -- as he walks to the podium, his right hand goes into his pocket and pulls some white sheet-like object out.  She hypothesizes that it's pre-written notes, which are forbidden by debate rules.  You can see that Obama isn't pulling anything out of his pocket as he walks to the podium.  She thinks there's further evidence in a C-SPAN video of the end of the debate, but I can't get it to load.

Anyway, it'd be worth looking into exactly what Mitt pulled out of his pocket.

Update: This seems to suggest that it's a handkerchief -- Mitt wiped his face with one late in the debate.
