Rudy had a conference call with his health care gurus and lead Domestic Policy Advisor Stephen Goldsmith. They did not unveil any specifics but outlined general principles --market based competition, no mandates for indivdual or employer converage, and encourage state innovation. He does have line up of conservative thinkers in this area and seems to be staking out the position that many Democrat plans as well as the Romney Massachusetts approach take us down the wrong road. Rudy will speak tomorrow and we will know what this all means in practice. More details to follow.

UPDATE: To clarify, Rudy was not on the call himself. They put all the gurus on the phone but offered few details, clearly not wanting to step on Rudy's lines for tomorrow.The most meaningful point to be gained is that he does have an impressive line up of conservative thinkers -- including Goldsmith(former Bush domestic policy advisor and innovative Mayor of Indianapolis) and Mark McClellan (former FDA head) so those concerned about innovative policy and not allowing the Democrats to monopolize the health care debate will be pleased.
