In my commentary this year I have been trying to stay away from the general topic of healthcare reform. The debate is shifting very fast, there is a lot of noise and we hear familiar positions reiterated by every stakeholder.
But last weekbroke some new ground in the debate, at least as far as process and format is concerned. I am talking about Obama's scripted town-hall events that prompted Obama-Bush and even Obama-Nixon comparisons. The shocking part is, the Administration is being attacked by its former cheerleaders!
How do you go from being a darling of media to the target of attacks?
