48. I'm with you here, altho my optimistic side wants to believe it's true.
Not that I think he has fundamentally changed; just that he has accepted a certain amount of reality. However, we'll see if he REALLY means it when, if the government public option is enacted, he champions actually FUNDING it properly. I don't want him coming back after pubs have slashed its funding, saying "Ya see! I KNEW government health care doesn't WORK!"
