1. After today's AFL-CIO organizing letter & blog entry the question may be "Does he want to"?
After a rousing speech threatening Dems who don't support a public option as part of a healthcare reform bill, he's backed down and is now only asking for insurance regulation reform. Boy, didn't take long for the cave-in. I have to question whether there was anything sincere about the convention speech or was it simply a ruse to get a reputation as "tough" w/ no intent of following through. Frankly I'm heartsick.
