“Fatal Attraction,” the Washington version is playing on a television near you as Obama’s bipartisan summit on healthcare approaches. Like a possessed, rejected maniac the president refuses to allow the idea of a massive restructuring of our healthcare system to fade.
You’re just not that into his healthcare bill? Too bad. He won’t be ignored.

They understand that this is a carefully calculated public relations gimmick designed to force their hand.
