    Any reform at this point would be considered a victory for Obama. GOD knows he needs at least one.

    I guess the libs will be blaming the concession of the public option on the angry Nazi mobs of the commen sense party.

    Surely the Democrats don't believe a word of what the public says they really want.... Must be the hint that they are about to screw up really really bad... Nancy Pelosi is whispering in Obama's ear, "Don't be a dumb ass, Barack. If I loose this job nobody else will hire me!":lol:

    As that's what he said he'd do during the elections, that would make sense.
