93. Give him MORE, not LESS progressives who will vote like Bernie Sanders, and I'm with you.

The point is you can bitch at Obama all you want. The bottom line is that there were a bunch of Blue Dog Democrats in the House who weren't going to go along with Dennis Kucinich's single payer bill. They also weren't going to go along with the other three public option bills, no matter what Obama did.

In the Senate, we had the likes of Joe LIEberman and Blanche Lincoln, among many other Blue Dogs who believed it politically expedient to fight against reform.

Bottom line, we elected Democrats who vote more like Mitch McConnell than the great Bernie Sanders, unfortunately. Is that Obama's fault?
