  •  When negotiations begin (0+ / 0-)

    by taking single payer off the table right from the get-go, that's debating from a place of weakness. Baucus and several others have come at this with hat in hand from the beginning. Any skilled negotiator will tell you that while flexibility is essential, you don't compromise yourself from day one. That's what I mean by an inability to behave in a manner that's any different from when the Republicans were in control and the Dems took on a demeanor of impotent losers. At a certain point, this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
