Believing in the Change You Can't See

Apparently we were supposed to take it on faith that politicians have our best interests at heart when it comes to health insurance reform.

With House and Senate leaders trying to figure out how to proceed legislatively, Mr. Axelrod also issued a warning to Democrats who were reconsidering their support for the health care measure.

“As a political matter, the foolish thing to do would be for anybody else who supported this to walk away from it,” he said. He added, “The underlying elements of it are popular and important, and people will never know what’s in that bill until we pass it, the president signs it and they have a whole new range of protections they never had before.”

Uh, David? Do you realize that you just identified the problem here?

It's simply stunning that the people who ran one of the most brilliant campaigns in history have failed so miserably when it comes to selling their own policy.
