Bad News for GOP -- or Good News for Romney?

For a sharp critique of California Governor Arnold Shwarzenegger's massive universal health care proposal, see here.

This being the first year of the General Assembly's two year session, sources in Sacramento are telling The Oracle that this polarizing and complex issue will likely carry over into 2007. Court challenges could push implementation of anything that passes still further.

That could be bad for Republicans. California issues often become national ones, and health care coverage is already on a lot of minds anyway. If 2008 is dominated by discussion of health care coverage proposals, that will mean that the predominant issue is one that has not been a strong one for Republicans -- with one exception: Mitt Romney.
