Senator Obama still isn't ready. Consider this exchange from the Stephanopoulos Sunday show highlighted by Tom Bevan of Real Clear Politics:
Stephanopoulos: You've also said that with Social Security everything should be on the table.
Stephanopoulos: Raising the retirement age?
Obama: Everything should be on the table.
Stephanopoulos: Raising payroll taxes?
Obama: Everything should be on the table....
Stephanopoulos: Partial privatization?
Obama: Privatization is not something I would consider.
