As embarrassing as McCain's campaign has been of late, Obama has continued to make this a campaign about issues, even though he is the only adult to show up to the Presidential Campaign. Case in point is his economic plan (which in contrast to Bushco's "Throw Me the Money" and McCain's "Let's Only Help Rich Seniors Like Myself" plan) actually starts with the economic problems of the middle class and how to solve them. [Aside to McCain: If US News and World Report goes out on a limb and says the Right thinks your economic plan stinks, you're in trouble.] I'm not the only person who has commented that in light of McCain's failures, Obama hardly needs to be so detailed, goal-oriented, and well, wonky at this point in the campaign. He is anyway. Ben F. Turton:

So far ahead in the race, it was unexpected that he would release such a bold, detailed plan. But more than that, it was truly shocking to see, for the first time in a generation, a politician hit a mark so directly on the head. Delivering exactly to the true middle class, rather than to either the poorer people or the richer, Obama's simple, relatively cheap economic rescue plan, if enacted, would immediately and significantly alter the course of the American economy for the better.

The rest is well worth a read.

And never to be outdone on the tech nirvana front, Obama's team has put together an online calculator so individuals and families can see how his plan would affect their taxes specifically.

Perhaps the McCain "Really Rich Seniors" abacus will be forthcoming sometime before November 4?
