Where's the "Vision Thing"?

Real Clear Politics' Tom Bevan notes the absence of "the vision thing" in Barack Obama's pitch for the presidency.

But it's not just vision that's lacking: As the old lady in the Wendy's commercial asked, circa 1984, "Where's the beef?"

For a while, lots of vision can obscure a lack of substance, and vice-versa. But when there's neither vision nor substance, it can mean trouble.

No doubt Barack is surrounded by legions of advisors, and they're working on these problems. It will be interesting to see how far, how long the adulation of the MSM can carry him.
