David Sirota sums it up:
So the notion that Snowe’s vote – or any GOP vote – is inherently pivotal to health care reform is a fantasy created by the Beltway media and the Democratic congressional leadership. The former is desperately trying to manufacture headline-grabbing drama; the latter is looking for a Republican excuse to water down the bill and protect corporate interests – all while absolving Democrats of legislative responsibility.
