If you have something published then that I think most would care about. The fact that you blog about your thoughts on healthcare reform and whatever else are not going to help you any tiny little bit in my opinion. Blogging isn't going to help you get a job, even having something published is unlikely to help much for most positions. Either way, what you mention certainly won't harm your chances so there is no reason to not do it if you have the time/motivation, just don't be delusional and think it will help you land a job.
