This one is a step in the right direction. At a town hall in New Hampshire, he answers a simple question -- his first three priorities in office -- with simple answers on Iraq, education, and health care, the latter taking up most of the six minutes (but could still stand some more specifics on funding). Good. Now let's see a dozen more like this.
