About Obama (OR Why do we need new?)

Apparently, Tyler Cowen appears distressed that he doesn’t have anything new to say about Sen. Obama. Matt goes meta, and decides it’s because we know so much about him.

Isn’t this a good thing? I mean, if we can’t talk about the candidates as people (after, is anyone complaining that we don’t have anything new to say about Sen. McCain?) perhaps we can talk about the candidates’ ideas. Sen. McCain’s been in public office forever… and Sen. Obama has written two books and survived what seemed like the longest primary ever.

So, let’s celebrate that there’s nothing new to say about the candidates, and get into the contrasts between the policy proposals, the underlying political momentum, or any of the various other things that will impact, or be impacted by, this election.
