Leaders, Not Laggards, On Health Reform

It has become a virtual tautology to say that the nation’s long-term fiscal problem is really a health care cost problem.

<p><p>Well, well, well. Last night's episode was all glitz and glam.

Obama Disses Harvard, Pushes Clean Energy

<p>President Barack Obama flew into Logan airport, visited a bunch of famous MIT professors, and pushed for the passage of his energy and climiate bill at MIT this morning. Oh, and he dissed Harvard, much to FlyBy's chagrin.</p><p>It's always been a dream of mine to visit the most prestigious school in Cambridge, Massachusetts. [Boooooo.] Hold on a second--certainly the most prestigious school in this part of Cambridge, Massachusetts. [POTUS redeems himself, sort of.] And I'll probably be here for a while -- I understand a bunch of engineering students put my motorcade on top of Building 10.</p><p>If the POTUS came to the most prestigious school in all of Cambridge instead, we would have shown him a good time -- and probably wouldn't have handed him a copy of the periodic table the size of a business card. Plus, Al Gore's visit last year is testament to the fact that Green is the new Crimson.</p><p>FlyBy's huffiness at being passed over for the second best school in Cambridge, Mass. aside, Obama gave a fantastically crisp 15-minute speech on the importance of clean energy. He also called out the fools who don't believe in clean energy and the "folks" who have been lobbying against the energy and climate bill. And then he left. Off to something important like Deval Patrick's fundraiser. Too bad his motorcade wasn't actually displaced to the top of Building 10 so we could have him around longer.</p><p>Notables spotted at the event. Senator John Kerry shaking hands in the front row, Congressman Michael Capuano handing out business cards, and Cambridge Mayor Denise Simmons striding into Kresge Auditorium with a gaggle of city councilmen.</p><p>Check out Monday's Crimson for full coverage of the event.</p><p>Full text of the speech after the jump.
