Stroke of the Pen, Law of the Land. Kinda Cool?

This quote from the fromer Clinton staffer Paul Begala has always made me ever more wary of easily giving power to government through processes like executive order.  As Obama prepares to sign the executive order which will accompany the health care bill and prohibit federal funding of abortion, I’m once again a little wary:  Something makes me suspect that this order will be a few pages longer and include a few more federal power grabs than strictly necessary to prohibit government-funded abortions.  The text of this document will be very interesting to read.
