lessons learned (hopefully)

2 interesting admissions from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on the HCR negotiations:

1. Joe Lieberman really did backstab him on the Medicare buy-in, promising support and then balking at the moment of greatest leverage,

2. (and this is the big one) the months spent negotiating with Olympia Snowe were a waste of time. Reid estimates that she never had any intention of signing onto healthcare reform.
