Leading By Example

While I support the President at signing tough new no-smoking legislation, shouldn't he lead by example?
There are fewer touchier questions inside the White House than this: Is Mr. Obama still smoking? One administration official declined to answer on Monday, but pointed out that the president spoke in the present tense, “I know how difficult it can be to break this habit,” as opposed to, “I know how difficult it was to break this habit.”
If we're going to make the case repeatedly for "prevention" as a cornerstone of health care reform (and supposed health care "savings"), I would suggest he practice what he preaches.

You sure are taking a bold and important position here. Might be time to start rethinking the relevancy of your blog.
