He's speaking now, taking questions about HIS bill, and he's answering them while smiling almost uncontrollably while looking clueless. Even though NONE of the Repubs. in HIS "gang of 6" signed on to the bill, he's SURE Repubs. will support it.
Meanwhile, I'm betting the WH sees this as license to go ahead with things NOT in Baucus's plan, including a public option. They'll say that they gave the "gang of 6" all the time in the world to try and they couldn't even come up with an agreement, even WITHOUT a public option. The WH gave Baucus all the rope he needed and now that he used it to kill the idea of bipartisanship, it's "go time" to get a bill the majority wants.
9. Just doing his part. The public option will come.

Had to make things look as non-partisan as possible, before we do it on our own. Obama is quite a chess master. This panel was the republicans last chance they blew it or will after the vote and we can move on with something more like H.R. 3200.
