What if Obama were to say, as he has before, that some of his programs have to be delayed?
...to me, this was one of the most clear-eyed admissions by either candidate throughout the campaign.
You definitely get a star on your forehead for that sort of honesty.
What's more, I expect that if either one sincerely admits this tonight, it will likely be Senator Obama. If Senator McCain makes a similar statement, that some of his programs have to be delayed I will be more skeptical of him and his intentions than Senator Obama as Senator Obama has gotten out ahead on this one without being pressed.
As it is, as you know, I am planning to vote for Senator Obama. If he continues to address the financial crisis in a sincere way he will make me an enthusiastic supporter rather than a tepid voter.
