Presidential Debate Follies:

2000: The candidates, Mr. Bush and Mr. Gore, are introduced and walk to the lecterns. You can see Mr. Gore step up onto a phone book or something to make him look taller.

2012: The debate is ended. Mr Romney stays at his lectern and shuffles some papers. Mr. Obama hops over to shake hands.

"I don't go to you, Junior, you come to me."
