Give Obama Credit

Mark Kleiman comments on this story about the Presidential Candidates' tax returns. It appears that nearly all of the presidential candidates have failed to release their tax returns. McCain, Guiliani, and Romney on the Republican side, Clinton and Edwards on the Democratic side.

All but one -- it seems that Barack Obama has indeed released his returns. Kleiman is annoyed that the article doesn't emphasize this fact more heavily.

Well, credit where credit is due. Obama isn't my favorite guy, but on this one I give him credit for full disclosure, where other candidates haven't done it.
