Claire McCaskill on Public Option's Options

Many people think democrats are kowtowing to Olympia Snowe, who's been brave in breaking ranks with the Party of No to help mold health reform. Snowe favors the public option trigger, which would put a public option in place if insurers didn't drive down costs.
But Claire McCaskill might be the better barometer of what health reform will look like.
Watch McCaskill talk about the public option on This Week. Note that everyone has a different idea of what a public option should look like. McCaskill favors the nonprofit public option model, as opposed to the full-out government run public option.
Read about the various options here.
