Howard Dean softens his opposition to the health care bill

I just watched Howard Dean on Meet the Press, and while he’s not supporting the health care bill, he’s no longer arguing that we should “kill the bill.”

Dean acknowledged that a number of improvements have been made the the Senate version over the past week, and he insists more improvements need to be made in conference. Many of his points might be attainable, so we can expect more improvements as the conference gets underway.

He doesn’t support the bill, and he may not support the final compromise, but his arguments are now much more constructive in how the bill can keep improving. He didn’t mention the reconciliation process once, and he refused to repeat his suggestion that Democrats should kill the bill.

McCain gives up straight talk

I wasn’t impressed with John McCain’s performance in tonight’s GOP debate. Just like he did on Meet the Press last week, McCain ducked questions and was presented with several contradictions in his explanations for his votes.

If he gets the nomination he will be tough to beat given his appeal to moderates and independents, but his appeal might fade if he keeps this up.
