Obama: The Conservative Choice for President?
Andrew Sullivan makes the argument, here. I agree with some of it, but it over-taxes the imagination to believe that Obama's health care reform is a conservative move (although I think it's the right move). Indeed, what Sullivan seems to be promoting is not so much conservatism as a pragmatic economism for which the normative goal is to maximize a social welfare function. It's a view in which I concur, but I know many "Conservatives" who would not.
