      "Just you watch": read: "Here's how it will play out, just like the Medicare Prescription bill" (which the President was doing PR for today). Only in this case, the steps will be reversed.

      The House will take up action and pass a bill authorizing private accounts. Accept anything that comes out of the Senate (even innocuously) as a vehicle that will get it to Conference Committee. Then make the necessary adjustments, allowing the WH to proclaim victory. . .

      We've seen it before. I don't know how this will play out, but I'm sure it will be interesting and colorful.
