Obama as a closet reformer?

Over the past months we've seen hints that Barack Obama may have well-concealed sympathies for school vouchers or performance pay -- but the hints are then quickly muddied by Obama staffers who insist he hews to the conventional platforms of the teachers' unions. Only the general election, or the presidency, will tell for sure. But there's a case to be made that school reform may be Obama's one departure from a purely liberal line, and the case is made here.
