8. I really think a public option is doable, as long as people have a choice.

I think a lot of folks will gravitate to the public option, assuming it delivers, over time. It won't be easy to get enacted, but at least it makes an early concession to the 40+% who are opposed to single payer right now.

Might not happen in 2017, but after that there's a reasonable chance with the proper groundwork.
