One Year of Manmohan Singh

Via Christian Science Monitor, Sluggish start for India's leader.

We hope Dr. Singh will now defy his leftist coalition partners on radical economic reform. What's the worst that can happen? They'll pull his government down, but that would only place the debate on these reforms at the center of our politics.

This is a debate worth having. Why are reformers tip-toeing around big ideas as though they are committing a crime? Let's give India's people some credit and, if necessary, ask them what they think of reforms. We bet that, if directly asked, they will surprise the political left by standing with a bolder Dr. Singh.
