But a Democratic leadership aide who sat in on an administration briefing Tuesday said that while Obama will offer support Wednesday for a public option, the president will not insist on it.
“He’s going to say it’s the best tool for reducing costs,” the aide said. “I think he’s going to be a bit noncommittal.”
(Via Instapundit) If I was still a Democrat, I’d be praying right now that this is just some massive head fake, and that the President was going to show up to the speech tonight with an actual bill. Because the one thing that nobody wants from President Obama right now is for him to be ‘a bit noncommittal.’
