A Hill Divided Against Itself

So. Lieberman and Graham are wailing that they'll filibuster EVERYTHING unless the detainee picture publication ban gets passed. Meanwhile, Democratic Senators are saying that they'd never touch a public option for health care, whereas "blue dogs" Dems in the House are facing up to the fact that the House proposal is going to have one.

Oh yeah. The two houses of Congress are now officially at war with each other. Rahm, however you might have liked this little game up until now, playtime is definitely over.

(Yes, there are going to be Democratic Senators that aren't opposed to a public option. But Baucus and Nelson are the chief anti-public voices in the process, Landrieu is against it, and meanwhile the Senate voted near-unanimously in favor of the picture ban.)
