Obama needs a (better) point-by-point economic plan

Barack Obama's economic plan just ain't pithy enough for regular Joe voters. At least that's what William Galston, a fellow at the Brookings Institution, says. Early Tuesday morning, Galston posted a long epistle to Obama on the Web site for the Democratic Strategist, a public opinion and political strategy journal. The letter's subject line was "Adjust or Lose" and boy, did Galston rake Obama over the coals for his lack of a "clear message" on the economy in light of last weekend's news that several financial institutions had crashed. McCain, meanwhile, "has filled the void with his own" message, and it's one that resonates with voters.
