Difference Between Obama and Clinton on Economic Policy

This article in the NY Times summarizes some of what Obama has said about economic policy and struggles to find substantial differences between Obama and Clinton. As we've discussed in more detailed posts (see the list off to the left on this page), there is barely any daylight between them when it comes to the economy.

The only difference I see that's even a tiny bit significant is that Clinton has come out for a moratorium on all free trade deals, including pending accords with Colombia, Panama, and South Korea. While Obama has also cast himself as a free trade skeptic, he hasn't taken such a sweeping stance.
