Economist's prefer Obama tax plan

The elite media can't seem to bring themselves to do simple comparisons of the candidate's key platform planks so it's left to niche players like blogs and magazines. I ran across this today from the Economist.
AS THE financial crisis pushes the economy back to the top of voters’ concerns, Barack Obama is starting to open up a clear lead over John McCain in the opinion polls. But among those who study economics for a living, Mr Obama’s lead is much more commanding. A survey of academic economists by The Economist finds the majority—at times by overwhelming margins—believe Mr Obama has the superior economic plan, a firmer grasp of economics and will appoint better economic advisers.

Considering the sorry state of the economy and the apparent inadequacy of the sell-out bailout, I'm not sure how much of this plan will ever see the light of day, but at least it's a start towards fiscal sanity.
