78. Hmmm, how about this for a suggestion:
Edited on Mon Jan-25-10 02:31 PM by Hell Hath No Fury
Having a nationally televised conversation with America that went a little something like this:

"This is President Obama. I am asking members of Congress to submit a Health Care Bill to me to sign that (insert your best choice -- mine being for right now Medicare for all with full prescription coverage, plus dental, and vision). There will be much opposition to this bill by powerfull lobbies and by many members of the Congress who are unwilling or too afraid to pass such landmark legistlation.

To get this done I need your help. I need each and every one of your to contact your representatives to let them know you support such a bill and want them to support it too.

This is going to be a long, hard fight for us to make this happen, but I promise you yes we can!"

Followed by townhall after townhall across the country highlighting this new bill. And while he was at it, he could sicc Rahm on the Blue Dogs/New Dems Rahm helped created to do some kneecapping to force any waivering votes.

That is what he could have done. For starters.
