MSU's Charles Ballard says Michigan voters want messiah, but won't find one

A MSU economics professor provides a big dose of reality for voters who will be selecting a governor for our economically-troubled state. 

Charles Ballard in today's Detroit Free Press says:

"What voters want is a messiah who will lead us out of the wilderness right now.  And voters will be disappointed because that is not going to happen."
Is Ballard right?  Are voter's expectations too high?  How long will it take to get Michigan aimed in a positive direction?  Or is that still dependent on the global economy and not state politicians?
