Steve Beshear, color in Obama's blank slate

Some people who are excited about Sen. Barack Obama have developed a tendency to project their pet issues onto his presidential campaign platform though Obama himself has said nothing about them.

Take, for example, Gov. Steve Beshear and the House Democrats who think President Obama will swoop in and cover state and local government employees and retirees on some kind of federal health insurance plan.

Before they get too excited about this idea, they may want to check with their man first.

Their misconception will cost Kentucky taxpayers dearly.
