In Which I Do Not Rant


The new, positive me sez Ezra Klein makes a good point, partially justifying the Dems’ weak-kneed approach to health care reform:

If President Obama had begun health reform with a speech aggressively laying out the case for single payer, the next morning’s newspapers would be filled with stories suggesting that 40 Republicans and 30 Democrats had pronounced Obama’s health reform effort dead on arrival. And when that got torn apart, Obama’s credibility on the issue would’ve been substantially shredded.
