The Stupak game

Related to my last one, but I need to get my post count up. According to Marc Thiessen at the WaPo, about the only thing Pelosi can do to assuage Stupak and his gang is to promise them exactly what they want. But then there's still no guarantee, for the Senate still may change its mind and the bill.

This is where it all leads:
Stupak and the blue dog Democrats in the House have no leverage if they go along with Pelosi in a reconciliation strategy. The only way they can ensure that the abortion language and other provisions they oppose are eliminated is to reject reconciliation entirely -- and demand that the House and Senate start over with clean legislation.
