Mr. Obama: Got platform?

After the Indiana and North Carolina primaries yesterday, NBC's Tim Russert may be right, and you may be the Man. Most Americans love hope, motherhood and good crops. We are optimists if nothing else. But specifics, if you please. The U.S. economy? Foreign policy? Trade?

Which has been my point all along. Thanks for saying it. I don't want feel good fuzzy speech. Tell me something with substance. And yes, be specific. What about the economy, foreign policy and trade. Don't just tell me you think it is a problem and don't just tell me you are going to fix it. How and why might be good to know. Where are you going to get the money to fix it? What about trade? Open or closed markets. Free trade or what? And what about security? What are you going to do about that. Don't just tell me you are going to get the troops out. Why and what than? I think we are all tired of the BS from all those running, no matter what party you are from.
