James Pethokoukis has some gloomy thoughts on "How Tom Daschle Might Kill Conservatism." The upshot is that a coming expansion of government domination of the health care system will be impossible to undo, creating a vast class of people determined to protect their new benefits. Maybe. Though it seems to me that this assumes the system is going to work reasonably adequately, which I suspect won't be true. Not that a crummy new system causing a massive backlash is the most cheerful prospect, either.
