64. Nader wasn't on the Green ticket in 2004, genius
Then again, I don't expect the Blame Liberals First crowd at DU to think for a second and realize that David Cobb was the Green Party nominee. So how is it that they "lost 90% of their caucus" again?

Oh, and I probably shouldn't point out that even Cobb was telling supporters to vote for Kerry in close states in an effort to take down Bush. Nope, probably shouldn't point that out at all.

This bill already represents a compromise - public option - that is now in danger of being dropped further to gain the support of a party hell bent to see Obama fail, no matter the consequences. They aren't going to vote for it. Period. Why are we trying to suck up to them again?

Yes, it is better to kill it unless it contains the public option. Just wait and see how Obama and the Democrats will be portrayed if there's a mandate to buy insurance with no viable, affordable public option. The ads and columns write themselves. Kill it, and it becomes the fault of do-nothing Republicans and know-nothing Blue Dogs intent on pursuing the interests of the insurance companies over the interests of the people of this country.

Then again, that would require "spin," and it seems like Democrats like you would rather just attack the liberal base rather than attack the GOP on their own turf in the media.
