Clinton endorses health care "public option"

Steve Benen (MSNBC/MaddowBlog) reports on Hillary Clinton's endorsement of the public option. That option died during the fracas over the Affordable Care Act back in '09/'10 - in spite of its popularity. But now it could be making a big comeback.

Postscript: I’m very much inclined to give The New Republic’s Brian Beutler credit for keeping this issue alive, by the way. Brian published a good piece in mid-January, making the case for the public option, not only on the policy merits, but also as a political winner in a Democratic nominating contest. His commentary appears quite prescient now.
