Steve Hildebrand, former Obama deputy campaign manager, criticized Obama yesterday and many liberals had turned on Obama. Post speech, Hildebrand seems to be ready to redirect his efforts. Interesting that Obama didn't say much new, but what he sold was the idea that health care reform won't be derailed, lies will be debunked and now is the time to take a giant step forward. And thanks to Joe Wilson, democrats rallied. I'm interested to read what Paul Krugman and Robert Reich, two big advocates for the public option, thought of the speech.
