60-59 LET THE DEBATE BEGIN

One step at a time. Harry Reid held all sixty senators on a cloture motion to allow debate to begin [after Thanksgiving] on the health care reform bill. For some mysterious reason Voinivich was absent, so the Republicans lost one vote, which did not matter. The saintly, oh so independent, Olympia Snow voted to close off debate before it began. Why do the David Broders of the world persist in imagining that people like Snow and Collins are any better than their hard right colleagues?

A correction: One of my faithful readers, Professor Jennifer Jensen-Wallach, informs me that Whole Foods bought Bread and Circus. It did not begin as Bread and Circus, as I said. Many thanks for the heads up.
