    Back in 2008, I saw much of that debate on a CSpan rerun.  Same observation you made.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.  

    People have really short memories.

      here who watched the 1960 debate in real time and cast my first vote that year for JFK.  While I remember little about specific issues - well, I do remember Quemoy/Matsu even though I still can't spell them - the pictures in my mind are of a charming, attractive Jack and a nervous, sweating Dick.
