CNN at it's best (not)

After Hoyer's conference call, an aide told CNN that the majority leader is in full agreement with the speaker about the need for a public option, and that a health reform bill will be hard to pass in the House without one.

And with the president vacationing in Martha's Vineyard, the tide may be turning against the public option idea.

"I'm afraid we've got to think about putting a lot of that off until the economy's out of recession. There's no reason we have to do it all now," Sen. Joe Lieberman, a Connecticut independent, said on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday. Also on Sunday, Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, said that "one of the fundamentals for any agreement would be that the president abandon the government option."

CNN engineering at it's best.

And hey quote Joe. How sad is that?
