Health care reform shorts:
What the fight is really about now

So Senator Harry Reid has given Senators a health reform bill to chew on.

Forget noxious Joe Lieberman's egocentric grandstanding. We'll either batter him (and the rest of the dithering Dems) into doing the right thing (breaking a Republican filibuster) -- or not. If not, there's no point in bothering to elect any of them. But since pure self-interest will probably lead to something getting passed, there are other aspects to this fight.

As Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) explains in this clip [4:33] the real focus of reform now should be to make it possible for most people to have the choice of an affordable public option, not just 10 percent of us.

Perhaps it's too soon to give up the dream.
