Although Obama didn't approve the Keystone expansion during his first term, most suspect that was a sop to his environmental base, who oppose the pipeline largely because they don't want Canada's carbon-heavy oil sands developed.
But not wanting to pass up the nearby crude, analysts expect Obama would approve the Keystone project during a second term, albeit with a strict environmental review and permitting conditions.
Romney has said he would approve the pipeline his first day on the job.
Obama and Romney square off on just how much to tax the rich and the middle class in terms of income, investments and estates.
