Nancy Pelosi Talks About the Kinds of Public Options

Nancy Pelosi speaks to Andrea Mitchell on the public option. She's using some fancy footwork by saying that she has the votes for a public option---but she's not sure what kind of public option will be decided upon:
Chuck Todd doesn't think a public option will make it into the merged bill. I'm thinking there will be a public option with a trigger. Todd says the House doesn't want to vote until it knows what the Senate is doing. Now Harry Reid is saying he's close to 60 votes for a public option. What kind of public option that will be remains to be seen.
