Brilliant move by Wesley Clark's campaign manager: Have the Democratic presidential hopeful ride the New York subways (to Queens, no less) to understand what goes on in New Yorkers minds before pressing the flesh.

Clark announced his plan for "Success in Iraq" (PDF), a title which, quite frankly, sounds like a bad PowerPoint presentation some multinational oil company gave a couple fiscal years ago.

A bad PowerPoint presentation we'd like to see: "2001 Budget," by the MTA, especially the section on "How We Will Win," with bullets of "Keeping two separate books of our finances," subpoints of "One for public (faked, showing agency near bankruptcy)" and "One for use (real, reflecting profit)."
