The closer we get to the election, the more Presidential he appears. I have heard that "crises don't develop character, they reveal character." I think Obama showed presidential character today.
In the midst of the financial meltdown, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama on Friday called for an economic plan for working families, saying, "We cannot only have a plan for Wall Street. "We must also help Main Street," he said.
While "tough new regulations on financial institutions" are needed, the Illinois senator called for an emergency economic plan for working families.
Obama spoke after meeting with his economic advisers in Coral Gables, Florida.
"It is critical at this point that the markets and the public have confidence that their work will be unimpeded by partisan wrangling, and that leaders in both parties work in concert to solve the problem at hand," Obama said.
In my view, Obama demonstrated Presidential poise and a mastery of understanding of the situation while McCain continued to point fingers and offer one liners as the solution.
