How to record streaming presidential debate?

How can I record a video stream from CNN this Friday?

I follow US politics and elections like other people follow professional sports, and there's a playoff tomorrow that sounds like it's going on whether or not one of the teams shows up. Unfortunately, I have play rehearsal tomorrow night and will be unable to watch it. I don't have cable TV, and was planning on watching it on CNN's or Fox's stream. Is there a simple way to record it for when I get home? Alternatively, is there a reliably-seeded bittorrent tracker for political videos like this?

Well if it was like last year, iTunes had all the debates available for free download later. Someone might upload it to the Pirate Bay later as well.

Er, make that last time, not last year :)

I imagine it would also appear on Obama's YouTube Channel as well.
