7. What we have is a basic understanding of how politics works
You think that the president is going to sit quietly by and "let the system" work on health care? No, because that is a major policy priority for this Administration. When it comes down to a real health care reform bill in congress, he will be blitzing the media and so will his staff, they will be on every talk show, radio, in print, writing op-eds in every major paper, spending money, and behind the scenes, people like Rahm will be twisting arms and threatening to run challengers in people's primaries.

You know this perfectly well. You are simply being difficult.

You say "I keep stirring" like its a bad thing. I'm proud to be stirring on this issue.
