I got called out in comments for being too hard on Rahm Emanuel in his role pushing health care reform through the Senate - and perhaps for good reason. Ezra Klein and Matt Yglesias argue that the administration didn't have any choice. Chris Cillizza and Christina Bellantoni point out that Lieberman has leverage all over the place.

Meanwhile, Nate Silver and Atul Gawande discuss the positives of the Senate bill even sans any public option or Medicare buy-in. Paul Starr argues that the bill remains a necessity.
