Has Obama staked out a strong and clear policy position concerning the financial crisis?

I think that will be the question of the week. In fact, I think the answer could well decide the election. For the sake of the world economy, I think Obama must make a convincing argument that no bail-out plan that allows for a return to business-as-usual on Wall Street is acceptable. In my opinion, Obama needs to make a persuasive argument that tough new financial-industry regulations must accompany congressional approval of any rescue plan. He must fight for this. Bare minimum.

How do you think Obama is doing in relation to this question? Take the poll.
