Obama 'shows dull side on infomercial'

Says the Boston Herald's Jessica Heslam. She adds:

His 30-minute TV special was aimed at the middle class and depicted a few Americans struggling with finances and health care that left you with a feeling of depression rather than hope.

Those vingettes [sic] were far more engaging than the prerecorded segments of Obama speaking in a room that looked an awful lot like the Oval Office, and the pitches by business execs and politicians, including Gov. Deval Patrick.

I'll add that voters may see it as a move of desperation. Nonetheless, about those "vignettes": Will we ever see happy middle class people who've benefited from... anything a candidate promises and carries through with?

McCain campaign, I'm lookin' at you.
