Obama and healthcare in prime time
I think Obama did a fine job last night. He put the status-quo in perspective and he explained what's in the plan for the average American (which was the point of the night). It's a shame that pundits, like Howard Fineman, can't seem to grasp that Obama was not talking to them, or to Congress, for that matter. Obama was talking to the American people. I had heard it all before, but my girlfriend, who is not attached to the Interwebs every minute of the day, hadn't, and she was impressed. For me, just the fact that he used the term "ginned-up" makes the night a winner for the president (but I'm easy like that).
