I finally read the WSJ "Liberal Supermajority" editorial that Pete told me about. It was OK. Because it covered so many issues, it couldn't really do much in the way of persuasion on any given issue -- each section seems to start out assuming that the reader already understands and agrees with the editorial board's position.

In the section on health insurance, committed conservatives and long-time WSJ readers will see the term "single-payer" and think "socialism - bad." But I remember the first time I ever heard the term single-payer... I thought whoo hooo! No need for multiple claim forms!
