Robert Kuttner: A Wake Up Call Chicago-style thug politics of handouts and special favors is satisfying no one. Good for those Dems who aren't sheep and realize the guy apparently fighting "special interests" has put together a bill written with drug companies, unions, and fence sitting Senators in his own party. Either go all out for a public plan, or pick another issue. Even if this bill and Coakley squeak by, no one's happy with the result or the process. Have to think Rahm Emanuel's probably gone after the inevitable GOP gains in the 2010 mid-terms.
