There is a great story at the New York Times site about Obama's economic views. Miracle of miracles, it is actually a piece that discusses the candidates actual policy ideas. It's long, but definitely worth the read.

Unfortunately, it also proves that the Obama team is a bunch of sissies, because if we have learned anything over the last few years, it is that facts are for wieners.

As anyone who has spent time with Obama knows, he likes experts, and his choice of advisers stems in part from his interest in empirical research. (James Heckman, a Nobel laureate who critiqued the campaign’s education plan at Goolsbee’s request, said, “I’ve never worked with a campaign that was more interested in what the research shows.”)
Might as well get him fitted for a pair of capris.
