Pawlenty's themes at tomorrow's RNC speech

CBS News says Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty will address three major topics in his big speech at the Republican National Convention tomorrow.

1. The federal budget: he'll contrast what he did in Minnesota with what Obama's done in Washington.

2. Foreign affairs: he'll note that he's recently returned from the middle east, and stress his commitment to providing maximum support for US troops.

3. Health care: This is where things get interesting. Pawlenty's advisor says:

“The health care debate in Washington is more than a difference between the two parties."

Is T-Paw going to argue that it transcends politics (the more pedestrian argument) or that there are intraparty differences (which would fit in well with his recent attacks on the Massachusetts model)?
