Stick With Pragmatism
As some point soon President Obama will need to redefine victory on health care to ensure he achieves it. It is unlikely that he will get the plan he's proposed, but Washington never sees sin in compromising - that is par for the course on almost every effort -- but there is sin in losing.
More pragmatist than idealist, Obama has often had a way of convincing people he is trying to find the right answer, rather than win an ideological victory, and in turn he is given more latitude than he otherwise might have. As the political stakes intensify he needs to stick with this approach, not retreat from it. If he does, he'll get both the public support and the Congressional support he needs.
