A Sign of the Times?
by

New York Times‘ columnist Bob Herbert, to me, has always epitomized the kind of unyielding and predictable liberalism that makes the newspaper’s editorial and op-ed pages a bore, but at the same time, his columns are something of a barometer of elite public opinion. That’s why today’s column by Herbert, framed with the hypothetical “If I were a close adviser of President Obama’s, I would say to him…” is noteworthy:

Reforming the chaotic and unfair health care system in the U.S. is an important issue. But in terms of pressing national priorities, the most important are the need to find solutions to a catastrophic employment environment that is devastating American families and to end the folly of an 8-year-old war that is both extremely debilitating and ultimately unwinnable.

If Obama’s singular focus on passing health care legislation is starting to make even a dependable liberal like Herbert get antsy, then it tells me Democrats are running out of time to get this done.
