President Obama might wish he had chosen his words more carefully:
President Obama, surrounded by Senate Democratic leaders, said today "we are on the precipice" of major health care changes, though "there are still some differences that have to be worked on."
He inadvertently spoke the truth, however. Democrats have run to the edge of a cliff on health care reform. And no matter how bad the news gets on eroding public support and estimates of how much more this will cost taxpayers, they remain determined to jump off anyway.
