The American people aren't sure about Democratic plans for health care. The American people also don't regard Republicans in Congress as especially credible messengers. In that context, I wonder if we'll see more examples like this one, from First Read, of governors taking the lead in the health care debate:Republican governors earlier today defended the confrontational crowds seen at dozens of town-hall meetings across the country as being part of the "Democratic process.
"People are scared, saying my very existence may be threatened," Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle said on a conference call with reporters and other Republican governors, adding, "There are many people who are already satisfied with their health care and want to know what is going to change."
Govs. Haley Barbour of Mississippi and Sonny Perdue of Georgia agreed and criticized the administration for rushing through a plan.
