Lining up the ducks 

So Big Pharma is on side. The AARP is on side. The American Medical Association is on side.
And yet somehow Obama's health care priority is supposed to be failing?
Meanwhile, the most hated corporations in America, the health insurance companies, are joining forces with the least liked political party in America, the Republicans, to make up ridiculous stories about killing grandma. And somehow this unholy alliance is going to threaten Obama's popularity?
Only in the Bizarro world of Fox News and the TV pundits would any of this be interpreted as bad news for Obama.
I have been worried about whether this reform attempt will make it, but with the pharmaceutical companies getting on-side, I am heartened and encouraged -- I think Obama is really getting everything lined up for this bill.
