Obama: No vouchers

I guess Sen. Obama's much-remarked "move to the center" has some limits.  After suggesting, in February, that he was not necessarily hostile to school choice, he has now made it clear, in a speech to the American Federation of Teachers, that he opposes school vouchers (including the Washington D.C. program, which enjoys bipartisan support, including from the District's mayor).  In my view (for what *that* is worth), he should have listened to Jonathan Alter (no right-winger), in this recent Newsweek piece, and taken on the teacher unions.  It's time to turn the page.
