Waiting for the Blue Dogs to Bark


There’s word today that the White House, behind the scenes, has pretty much given up on getting any GOP votes for health care reform and is putting together a strategy for passing that legislation on a party-line vote.

If true, how long before one or all of the Blue Dogs announce they won’t support a bill that lacks “bipartisan support”?

It’s coming.  Easily before the week is out.  Personally, I don’t think we’ll get to the end of tomorrow before it happens.  We’ll see.

(NB: My definition of “Blue Dogs” isn’t limited to the House.  I include the Ben Nelsons and Evan Bayhs and so forth.)

    I still wonder if this is something Obama really believes in.

    But, from a different perspective, are you nostalgic for LBJ?
