    It's different demographically now; it's different socio-economically (downward mobility for the 99%); it's different in terms of cohort experience (the Iraq war debacle has made the public much more leery about getting into war--this "Iraq effect" has been much underestimated). It's different in terms of social media. (The new motto should be: It's the internet, stupid)
