Health Care a Burden on Reid? Not If He Gets It Done Right.

Oh, joy. The Sun has another piece out this morning on Harry Reid, health care, and some silly lame@ss "polls" from that other paper. The Gleaner, meanwhile, engages in idle speculation over Reid retiring or losing next year. And yes, that was also all about some silly lame@ss "poll" from that other paper.

OK, here's what everyone is forgetting. People have been frustrated with Reid mainly over not being strong enough to get a good health care bill. But lately, he has been forceful in keeping the public option in the bill, as well as other important things like subsidies to help with affordability and overall stronger regulation of the insurance industry.

I've said this before, and I'll say it again. As long as Reid fights for a good bill, he'll do just fine and win in 2010. It's really as simple as that.

Between all the radical righties screaming for Reid's head and all the "progressive puritans" screaming for Reid's head, the noise from all their screams can be deafening. But as long as Reid gets the job done (and done right... Er, I mean LEFT!), he'll win yet another "race he can't win" and all the detractors will have to scream about something else until 2016. ;-)
