Poll - who is better on the economy?

The economy is shaky at best. This may become the most important issue in the GE.
I have my own reasons for thinking that Hillary and the Clinton name are to be most trusted in terms of economic leadership - I give them some credit for some of the success of the 1990's. But I want to know - what do you think, and why? Which candidate do you think will be strongest in the General Election on the issue of economic leadership?
For those of you that think Obama is best, why should Obama garner any more trust than Clinton on this critical issue?
For those that would say Clinton is best, why do you think that in general polling, Clinton does not have an edge over Obama on the issue of the economy? How could she make this a larger issue to voters in places like North Carolina and superdelegates?
For those that might lean towards McCain on the economic side (while still being socially liberal, for instance), what is it specifically that you dislike about Obama or Clinton's economic policies? Is it intevention in the subprime mess, or bigger things like national healthcare that you oppose? Or do you perceive some dishonesty about what Obama / Clinton are saying about free trade agreeements? Would you actually vote for McCain because of this?
