A voucher milestone

"Through his press secretary Robert Gibbs, President Obama has declared that he will reverse congressional Democrats' phase-out of the DC Opportunity Scholarships program," Andrew Coulson writes in a new blog post.
The old guard of the Democratic party — typified by congressional leaders — still imagines that school choice is bad for them. They still think that they can roll back time to a period when the public school monopoly was inviolate. That time has passed. Real educational freedom is spreading — slowly — around the country. That is not going to stop.

The last Democrats to be found jamming their fingers into the dike, hoping to stop the flight to educational freedom, will find their political careers swept away when that dike finally crumbles.
