"The New Liberalism" - George Packer in The New Yorker - http://www.newyorker.com/reporti...
"With a movement behind him, Obama would have the latitude to begin to overcome the tremendous resistance to change that prevails in Washington. Without one, he will soon find himself simply cutting deals. And here is where the two aspects of his vision of the Presidency—the post-partisan Obama and the progressive Obama—converge." - Ruchira S. Datta
"The [Wall Street] Journal’s nightmare scenario of America under President Obama and a Democratic Congress included health care for all, a green revolution, expanded voting rights, due process for terror suspects, more powerful unions, financial regulation, and a shift of the tax burden upward. (If the editorial had had more space, full employment and the conquest of disease might have made the list.)" - Ruchira S. Datta

Nice. Comparing charts is awesome. - j1m
Let's do swing state airdrops of leaflets bearing this info. - Christopher Sacca
Just read http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/Uploade.... McCain's economic policies look worse than Obama's in almost every way: taxes favor the rich (as shown in the graphs above), less people get health care, and the government would have much more debt. - Evan Parker
The two chartjunk tables are among the clearest infographics I've ever seen published on political matters. Great stuff. - Paul Haahr
Given that "trickle-down economics" lays things out in a very bare way, I wonder how persuasive such analysis has. It would seem that, for much of the G.O.P. constituency: 1) non-pocketbook issues trump pocketbook ones, or 2) short-term pocketbook self-interest is trumped by long-term pocketbook aspirations. Well, anyway...that Freakonomics post nicely illustrates how presentation is so important when it comes to quantitative data...for those who care about accurate analysis of data...or data in general. - Chester
