The big healthcare speech

While I'm going to withhold all judgments on Obama's speech tonight until after he gives it, the fact that the WSJ is reporting that he "will press for a government-run insurance option in a proposed overhaul of the U.S. health-care system" is encouraging. However, the fact that he is still leaving the door open for "better ideas" is disappointing. I'm not sure what the point of the speech will be when it sounds like he is in the same exact place as he's been all year. Bright lines are needed and I'm not getting the sense that I should wear my sunglasses tonight.
