Earlier today, on Campaign Desk, I posted an assessment of an article by The New York Times’s Jeff Zeleny—an article that does, I think, a great job of reporting on the Obama campaign’s economic-messaging strategy.

Well, just wanted to add to the props-giving: Another NYT piece, this one by Michael Cooper, does a similarly commendable job of laying out McCain’s economic messaging. In a way that is informative, nuanced, and, as in Zeleny’s article, un-boring.

Thanks, guys.
