I take Obama to task on a lot of issues, but it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t acknowledge that he does take some good positions in this campaign. An example is illustrated in yesterday’s column by the New York Times’ Paul Krugman, which states:
The impression that Mr. McCain’s tax talk is all about pandering is reinforced by his proposal for a summer gas tax holiday – a measure that would, in fact, do little to help consumers, although it would boost oil industry profits.
Obama opposes this silly and, ultimately, fairly useless measure. Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, agrees with McCain.
