    then we have the votes.  1-2 votes are gettable, plus Cao is making noises about reconsidering his vote over the weekend.  I feel really good about where we are right now.

    •  I mean, 1-2 votes short (0+ / 0-)

      after all the chips fall. Cao is probably only claiming to be back in play to give Stupak more leverage. I think there could be a real showdown coming up tomorrow. On Twitter, folks are reporting that pro-choice leader Diana DeGette left a meeting with Pelosi saying, "We're not happy."

      •  I still like our chances. (1+ / 0-)

        Of course take nothing for granted, but they'll figure a way around this.

          I'm just worried there will be a replay of November, when Stupak walked away victorious.

            Nate Silver seems to think the Dems are probably at 217 right now.  Also, I don't discount Fox reporting if it's favorable to us.  If they're saying we have the votes, and that's all over twitter right now, then we very likely have the votes.
