The 100% most entertaining part of the debates was watching the cameras trying to keep the same amount of blue space above Bush and Kerry, which must have been in the contract. It was even more apparent due to the stripes on each podium.
By the end, you could hardly see the stripes on Kerry's but could see the entire striped section as well as part of the base on Bush's podium.
p.s. war is "hard work" especially on the television screens.
