Diabetes worthy of 'war'
It would be entirely fitting for Congress to rekindle the "war on cancer" in response to the death of Sen.

Along with a health-care reform bill, it would be a fitting tribute to the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., if Congress could act on his other great unfinished cause: immigration reform. For all his liberal Democratic passion, Kennedy understood -- as few of his colleagues seem...

Obama unfairly targets insurance as the enemy
For one supposedly dedicated to bringing parties together for health care reform, President Barack Obama shows unremitting hostility toward one of them: The health-insurance industry. In practically every speech he gives or town hall he hosts, there's a slam at insurance profits...

Obama rides high at 5 months, but clouds gather
The political verdict on President Barack Obama's first five months in office has to be "so far, so good," but it also must include trepidation about clouds on the horizon. For sure, he's popular. He's laid out a breathtakingly bold agenda that he has good prospects of fulfilling....
