    than we've seen from you the last couple of days.

    I doubt many here would disagree with you on the importance of single-payer insurance, or the wish that it be a reality.  

    I imagine many here though would think it's an impossible dream at the moment, when even the limited public option is so contentious.  If we do not think the single payer fight is winnable, I hope you won't think us lacking in commitment to the eventual goal - any more than some of our most liberally voting Senators and Representatives are, when they may make the same judgement.  

    I'm fighting for the public option now, with the hope that it will pave the way for true single payer by breaking this ridiculous mental block that some in the US seem to have.  That doesn't mean I disagree with you on its importance, just on the road to get there.  

    (Sadly, in Kathmandu no longer.)
