Obviously, Mark Halperin has never really talked to us who actually live in The Silver State.
Ummm, we Nevadans actually support the public option 54-39! And if anything, including a good public option in health care reform will actually help Reid win reelection next year... And for that matter, help his son Rory defeat the pack of GOP clowns who will probably soon commit political suicide in calling for Nevada to opt out.
So again, the DC Beltway Insiders know nothing about Nevada and The West. We care about our health care, even if they don't.
