Until now, we were thrown generic guilt trips: you don’t want the uninsured to die, do you?

But now, we go back to campaign time propaganda.

For disclosure: I was never a Deaniac and I am not sentimental in the least about what is going on.

I think Dean is right asking to “Kill the Bill” and I was expecting attacks on him from the Obama media.
