Increasingly I get the sense from the McCain campaign that they didn't learn about the impact of the Kennedy-Nixon debate in their history class. Actually, Sen. McCain was 24 at the time, he probably watched it on TV.

Its not that stagecraft trumps policy, but the presidencies of folks like FDR, Reagan, and Clinton show us that it is a vital element.
