Two commentaries on Nixon?

I just got the Nixon DVD in the mail. There are two Oliver Stone commentaries over the movie. Does anyone know what's different about these two commentaries? How much could he have to say that would warrant 2 whole separate commentaries?

I have no idea why they put 2 separate commentaries. I do know that Commentary A is the most informative. On Commentary B, he only speaks for about 5 minutes in the first half hour of the movie, and thats when i turned it off.

I'm assuming that the full-length commentary is a port from the old laserdisc box set. Stone must have had a few new things to add.

As much as it shames me to admit on this board, I don't have a widescreen TV. It doesn't say anything on the case about being anamorphic.
