I think the reason most people suggest that mortgage debt is good debt probably has to do with the house itself being worth significantly more than the amount owed against it, even with the interest, whereas unsecured debt is just debt. Unlike credit card debt, a mortgage is used to buy a hopefully appreciating asset and it provides housing (imputed rent) in the process.
