    much more specific

    Hi!
    What is the exact meaning of the following phrase? I mean the sentence typed in bold. It is from a text about political disputes. The word "specific" is the most important one I am looking for its exact meaning.
    He thought that things took a long time to happen in that country, and if the prime minister fell, there was a real possibility that a more amenable Government might follow . I said that I thought that the analysis had to be much more specific.

    Thanks very much

    Re: much more specific

    Have you tried one or more of the dictionaries at www.onelook.com? Definition #2 here seems to fit the bill.
