The last war (on health care)
Interesting summary from Brad DeLong. go read.
Yeah, it's about a book Broder co-authored. But the narrative seems sound enough for me.
I can see how Unity might be helpful in such a context, if Obama could get away with running right and governing left. But helpful isn't the same as successful, and the Republicans are as malevolent now as they were then. Maybe more so. Ditto the press.
Sigh. I guess I feel we should win the partisan war, not call a truce. And I worry that Obama's snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
