I think I've figured this out. Why Obama and the Dems in Congress are taking so long to finish health care reform. Its not about them being stupid or cowardly. Its not about the Republicans in Congress using the filiabuster to make everything grind to a halt. Its not about special interests with unimaginable money and power doing there worse to stop health care reform.
No, its all about keeping this dramatic. A nice long process, a few near-death experiences, its all about making this as dramatic as possible.
Of course, for the story to be complete there has to be a last-minute win. Otherwise we are telling a shaggy dog story that ends with people getting sick.
Pass the damn bill.
