The Ed Show on Blue Dog Dems and the public option in healthcare reform

Here's an excerpt from last night's (Friday) Ed Schultz Show on MSNBC. Schultz talks about the Blue Dog Democrats and the public option in the healthcare reform package (not single payer, which we should have, but perhaps a step in the right direction). Schultz also interviews Rep. Keith Elison (D-MN), a real progressive Democrat and two fast-talking Blue Dogs. You know the type, "Yes I'm in favor of a public option, But." And, in the end, that "but" will eviscerate the healthcare reform legislation. All progressive people need to make sure that their representatives in the House and Senate know they will not get our votes if they vote against a public healthcare option (even if they believe their real constituents are the moneychangers.)
