This could indeed be a "watershed moment" in America's awakening to the need to reform entitlement programs to prevent national bankruptcy. This is not to say that AARP's eventual reform suggestions will be good ones. But the very fact that AARP has moved off utter intransigence regarding reform and recognizes the need for changes that keep the systems solvent is a very big deal -- and a dagger in the hearts of Democrat candidates everywhere.

As my friend (and first editor) Jed Babbin said upon hearing the news, "one thing you can be sure of: AARP is positioned to make money on the deal. They're the richest lobby in the nation."
