At a time when President Bush is trying hard to sell federal preemption to the U.S. Supreme Court, the Food and Drug Administration is equally busy trying to repair and polish its tarnished image.

For example, for the first time, the FDA will begin monitoring prescription drug usage by millions of Medicare participants in an effort to identify potential safety problems. I have to wonder why it took the agency so long to figure this one out. I have to wonder if the push for federal preemption prompted the FDA to show some signs of life!
