Key Words: Polling and patriotism prescribe bipartisan path for health care, argues Peggy Noonan

Former Ronald Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan believes a patriotic bipartisanship is the path forward on health-care policy, and she says the polls back her up. To fellow Republicans worried that compromising with Democrats and leaving much of President Barack Obama’s signature health-care law in place would represent abandonment of seven years’ worth of repeal promises, the Pulitzer Prize–winning Wall Street Journal columnist serves up this metaphor:

‘If you campaign promising mayonnaise but once you’re in office voters start saying they prefer mustard, Politics 101 says, at least for now, hold the mayo.’
