    in this healthcare push it was his decision to go with Conrad on 10 year rather than 5 year scoring. I noted as much in a comment, but I probably should have written a diary.

    That is one area where Obama should have pushed back hard and Congress would have went with him.

    •  Obama just needed to move faster (0+ / 0-)

      Whether the base was 5, 10, or 1 year, these guys would have eventually made it 100 years given enough time to dither.

      Obama came out hard with the bailout and stimulus, but didn't follow up quickly enough with health care.
