Today does bring with it a whiff of nostalgia for the electioneering words and phrases we’ve all come to know and love. Take a listen above for some of our economic favorites.

So here’s the test: How many of the hard ones — not Romney or Obama or Clinton — can you identify? There were three, if you were listening well.

Tell us your answers — and what phrases you’re going to miss. We’re on Twitter @MarketplaceAPM. We’ll post the answers on Thursday at 1pm ET.


Update

Did you get ’em all? Here’s an answer key:

“9 – 9 – 9” — Herman Cain.

“Obamneycare” — Gov. Tim Pawlenty

“It’s almost like an Etch-a-Sketch” — Eric Fehrnstrom, campaign advisor to Gov. Mitt Romney
