I must have missed that memo too 

In an article in the Winona paper titled Klbuchar hopes to woo moderate Republicans, the Senate DFL candidate is said to have "framed her 20-minute speech around promoting universal health care."

I find it hard to believe that's a salable message.

She is also quoted "My mom said Medicare Part D got the grade it deserved in the beginning." I don't know how one goes from thinking Part D needs fixing -- which is debatable, but not an extreme position -- to universal health care.

Ms. Klobuchar, if you want to make this appeal to moderate Republicans -- and even me, not so moderate -- try giving people choices.
