    I mean nothing new from what we've known. He expresses support for it, but doesn't demand it.

      He made his support for one pretty clear. It's not the proverbial line in the sand, but I got the impression that a heck of a lot of other things will have to be in the bill if there ISN'T a public option.

      Dems, get some guts, or we'll KICK YER BUTTS!

        mandated insurance with no cost control would be disastrous. If the insurance lobby gets what they want and gets to write a lot of the bill(like they did with Medicare Part D), I don't have faith that any insurance reform is going to do it alone because they are already getting what they want.

        Plus there will be no Medicare like operation at all and the public option is already a compromise of single payer with the low overhead costs and the like.

        But I realize I am a downer after a good speech, though it's more than a small part and more than a means to me and many other people for good reason.

        I'll try not to be captain buzzkill too soon afterward.
