Obama on Health Coverage...

...on Hufpo. Here's a teaser:

"Sen. Obama knows words, and he knows how to use them. I don't think it's an accident that he uses language to raise very high expectations for his coming healthcare plan. Here are some of the things he says in his speech:

""Plans that tinker and halfway measures now belong to yesterday."

"In the 2008 campaign, affordable, universal health care for every single American must not be a question of whether, it must be a question of how."

"For too long, this debate has been stunted by what I call the smallness of our politics - the idea that there isn't much we can agree on or do about the major challenges facing our country."

"Caution is what's costly."

The Senator closes with an impassioned description of the fight to create Medicare, and the political courage that was needed to overcome resistance to change. That's raising the stakes very high for his own proposal."

Sounds good to me.
