Mack the nice

Posted By on Sat, Dec 12, 2009 at 8:30 AM

Mack McLarty, once chief of staff to President Clinton, joins a Washington Post roundtable on health legislation. He thinks something will pass.

I believe in bipartisanship (even though now it feels a bit like believing in the tooth fairy), because I believe that is how you reach most Americans. A bill that tries to appeal across party lines and that a broad range of Americans will embrace no doubt fits my definition of a "better" bill. But an important and good bill that can actually pass more than meets my criteria of legislation that should move forward, and I believe the Senate will do precisely that in the days ahead.
