TNR Defends Single Payer

And here's an almost immediate payout of Gore coming out for single payer health care. The New Republic weblog has rushed to defend the idea from the attacks of rightwingers such as David Frum.

Suddenly, the moderate Dem establishment can't completely trash the idea of single-payer health care, since their potential standardbearer may be promoting the cause-- and they wouldn't want to be eating their words in two years. So just by coming out for the idea, Gore has assured that progressives can now get a respectful hearing for the idea from the punditocracy.
