Health Care and Mr. President

Finally, in Barack Obama, health care reform has a president who could effectively use the bully pulpit to rally the public behind change. That effort could be aided by both the Obama campaign's grassroots network and organizations devoted to reform, whose resources can help mobilize public support.
Of course, these grounds for optimism hardly guarantee success. Financing health care reform in this fiscal climate will be an extraordinary political challenge, deep divisions persist in Congress, and many thorny problems are nowhere near resolution. Throughout the past century, reformers pursuing comprehensive change in the U.S. health care system have failed to overcome similar barriers.
But the fact that reform has failed before does not mean it is fated to fail forever. As the election of Barack Obama vividly reminds us, history is not always repeated. Sometimes it is made.
