Big Bird's big week

Big Bird was the unlikely star of last week's presidential debate. Now the 8-foot-tall "Sesame Street" regular is poised to be this year's breakout Halloween costume. Employees at New York City costume stores say that once Republican Mitt Romney mentioned Big Bird in his debate with President Barack Obama, the feathered costume started flying out of stores.
