Fake Populism: Exhibit A

After you read this story, there's really nothing I can add, except to note that, at least when Senator McCain said he didn't know much about economics, he didn't say he'd never listen to them. Senator Clinton seems to have stolen this particular issue from McCain, and by the time she's done with it, the Arizonan will probably not regret the theft.

What the story doesn't tell you, but Senator Obama did on Meet the Press this morning, was that his home state of Illinois already tried a gas-tax holiday, after he as a legislator voted for it, and it didn't work, which is why he opposes the idea now. But perhaps it's elitist to listen to experience, as well.
