    Let's not go all red-state over here.
    About what happened, I'm old enough to remember Reagan-Carter.  A pretty good job was done of teaching people that Reagan was a far right-ring radical (by the mild standards of those days), but at the single debate he came on all aw-shucks and non-threatening, and poor Carter was left to speak the truth about Reagan's record only to get a "there you go again."
    Carter was risk-averse, and ahead, so he decided to limit debates to just one.  Big Mistake.
    At least we have other debates coming.
    Moral of the story:  Risk-averse is risky.
