Here Comes Compromise

So Pres. Obama sees his legacy on a health care bill slowly swirling down the drain. He realizes it's past time for him to step up to the plate and do something. As early as next week Obama will go on TV (again!) to sell Americans on his health care reform.

My prediction? He will drop the public option and promise no abortion coverage. These are two things that Americans, for the most part, don't like. The left will go freakin crazy, but he knows they have no where to go. They will support him for re-election no matter what.

But for right now, he needs to pass health care reform. He needs this to be his victory. If he has to give up the public option and abortion to do it, he will.

If he doesn't do that or if he tries to keep those things and just put another spin on them, he will lose.
