Krugman Sums Up The Candidates On Domestic Issues

NY Times columnist Paul Krugman, who is a noted economist, has been a Hillary backer. In today's Times he sums up his feelings about her, McCain and Obama when it comes to domestic policy:

Mr. McCain, we’re told, is a straight-talking maverick. But on domestic policy,
he offers neither straight talk nor originality; instead, he panders shamelessly
to right-wing ideologues.
Mrs. Clinton, we’re assured by sources right and
left, tortures puppies and eats babies. But her policy proposals continue to be
surprisingly bold and progressive.
Finally, Mr. Obama is widely portrayed,
not least by himself, as a transformational figure who will usher in a new era.
But his actual policy proposals, though liberal, tend to be cautious and
relatively orthodox.

You can tell who he favors. I'm still anti-Clinton myself. I would NEVER vote for another Clinton, ever again, after what Slick Willy did to gay people. But it is interesting to read different people's take on the positions of the candidates.
