    •  Much as I hate to agree with that Tuffie... (0+ / 0-)

      I think that right this second, he's right.

      As it stands, we don't have the votes. About 8 Dems have flipped from Yes to No (Stupak, Lynch, Berry, Lipinsky, Carney, Rahall, Dreihaus, Arcuri), with the possibility of a few more becoming NO votes, and I don't think that many have flipped the other way - how many is it, 5?

      Hopefully Obama's meeting convinces some of the holdouts to pass it, but I'm worried that they might go the way of Lynch and just get more defiant.

      If this thing passes at all, it'll be by one vote. And I actually do have slight confidence in Pelosi to get that vote, but only if she's already got 215 in the bank. If she's just got 214, it's over; she won't have enough leverage.
