Friedman gets it right

I am more than happy to point out when I think that Tom Friedman of the New York Times is wrong. The converse should also be true. He talks in his latest column about what he sees as THE issue in the 2008 Presidential Election. It ISN'T Iraq, and it ISN'T Afghanistan. Nope, it's the state of our economy, and I'm inclined to agree with him: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/29/opinion/29friedman.html?_r=1&ref=opinion&oref=slogin. The Presidential candidate who best tells Americans how we will overcome the current economic ailments inflicting the country will most likely be the next President.

Just like every other election. "It's the economy, stupid" was always drilled into our heads when taking poli-sci classes in college.

This was a prescient article, because unfortunately Obama was perceived as being better for the economy. I read something claiming that when the financial crisis started to really heat up, McCain lost the lead in the polls.
