Good morning ... Vitals has largely been a Kavanaugh-free zone lately, because the health care implications of his nomination really haven't changed since the beginning.

But my colleague Kim Hart has written a deep, probing piece about the conversation all of this has started — a conversation that's bigger than the politics of this moment. Bigger than 2018, bigger than 2020, probably even bigger than a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court. It's good and worthy and I hope you'll read it.
