Scaling the Summit

I feel like last Thursday's hyped health care summit, a bipartisan (there's that fershlugginer word again) meeting of the minds at the behest of the president, was pretty worthless when it came to actually accomplishing anything. Each side dug in on their respective positions, and for one working day they lobbed rhetorical grenades across the conference table to the plaudits of their respective bases.

If you're a die hard opponent of reform, I doubt you saw anything to change to your mind, and I'm guessing the opposite is true as well. Worse, we have to wait just that much longer for something to actually get done. Still, maybe I'm wrong on this one. Jon Stewart seems to feel that something positive came out of it:
