The Whip Count

by Shannen W. Coffin

I’ve been of the mind all week that this was a done deal for Dems. But I’m starting to have doubts today. A president doesn’t cancel an overseas trip to do a victory dance on a bill that still needs to be reconciled. So Nancy Pelosi’s “this is a historic moment” explanation doesn’t fly. Word that the Dems are working on the only Republican to support the House Bill, Representative Cao from New Orleans, is also a sign that things are amiss in the Obama camp. Word that Massachusetts union lackey Stephen Lynch is a “no” is not a good sign. So while there is a sound and fury coming from the Dem camp, does it really signify anything?
