Obama 2007: I will not use reconciliation for health care. Obama 2010: Lol wut?

Great find by AHFF Geoff at CentristNet. During the run up to grab the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, Obama promised to move past the partisanship, to not be a 50+1 president:
...there are a lot of nice perks to being president, but you can’t deliver on health care. We’re not going to pass universal health care with a 50-plus-one strategy...

The interviewer then asked, “So is your answer to ‘Why I will be a better president than Hillary Clinton,’ is your answer that she’ll be a 50-plus-one president and you won’t?”

“Yes,” Obama said.
And then there's today's Obama, where polls show support for his health care reform doesn't even come close to 50%.
