Ed is ranting, Dean is more calming overall.

Ed says president should draw the line in the sand, and his ratings will go up.

Mentions Dean's book. Dean says hey Ed, tell us how you really feel about this.

GOP not interested in reform. Dean says we are on our own. Can get down to seriously drafting a good bill.

Ed says president should step up. Dean says draw the lines privately not publicly....but he says it IS decision time.

Ed's nervous about Conrad saying he won't vote, Dean appears to be confused about what Conrad said...Ed argues. Dean says he will do the right thing for the country. Dean says Kennedy Dodd bill in good shape.

Ed says if we can't get the public option should we back up. Dean says there must be a bill and it will have a strong public option.

Ed was very wound tonight. I know how he feels. The messaging from the administration is confusing and frustrating.

2. You know if there is one thing I've noticed Howard Dean is always right. Maybe we just ...

need to relax a little some things move behind the scenes that we never see front stage. If Dean feels comfortable with the process so do I. A few courteous call to congress reps won't hurt though.

10. He gets plenty of exercise.
In some ways he has been the loudest voice, immeasurably helping to keep the ball in play.

12. Seriously, Who Cares About Dean's Opinion?
He only won us back both branches of Congress after 12 years, when the DLC-controlled DNC lost every time.

13. I love listening to this great man! He and I agree 100%
I know there is lot of talk of caving in and rolling over...but I just don't buy it. The media is doing their best to keep this in the news as though the President and his plans are falling apart in mid air...but I don't buy it.

I'm going to keep the faith and trust in this man. Until I have reason not to...he is the best thing that could have happened to this country at this time. God bless President Obama and help him to do what is right and needed for this country. WE have to be his soldiers in this battle.
