Is real health care reform still a real possibility? Somehow, the loudest and most deranged voices of the extreme wing of the Republican party have managed to nearly derail the whole megillah. So, once again: you don’t like the public option? You DON’T HAVE TO SWITCH. You like your insurance? Fantastic. Keep it. Here’s a cigar.

In this segment on CBS’s Early Show, Howard Dean explains why caving to the Republicans and the conservative Blue Dogs for a couple of measly votes in the name of bipartisanship now will cost them much, much more in the future: in terms of House votes, in terms of voter enthusiasm, and in terms of real reform.

The Howard Dean interview begins at 1:31.
