Clearly as disappointed in the resulting Senate healthcare bill as many progressives are today, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann gave a preview of his ‘Special Comment’ that aired on Countdown Wednesday eveing in a diary at Daily Kos, ” There could not be a finer line between the words compromise and compromised and tonight, with the greatest possible reluctance, I believe I have to go on the air and state my opinion that the Senate bill in its current form has clearly crossed that line and, as currently constituted, cannot be passed.”
