is it just me, or does it suddenly seem like a health care reform bill with a public option is looking a lot more likely?
there's still a danger that we'll get a bill with a bullshit public option (i.e. one that is designed to fail, or so hobbled that it can't be a meaningful competitor to the private insurance industry). but the vibe i'm getting is a lot more positive than the one i remember just one month ago. i wonder what happened. was it the president's speech? the disasterous reception of the (public option free) baucus bill? or something else?
