Why Now, John?
I've noticed a lot of bloggers in the past few days giving hosannas to Senator Kerry for his new child health care initiative. And this is a clever idea--exactly how an opposition party is supposed to behave. But, er, this begs the question of why he didn't propose something like this during the campaign, y'know? After all, this is just the kind of bold initiative that people were screaming for--something that would set Kerry apart as more than just an ABB candidate. What gives?
