HEALTH CARE SUMMIT OPEN THREAD…. It took nearly seven-and-a-half hours, but the bipartisan White House health care summit has wrapped up. I listened to just about every syllable, and I’ll try to put together some coherent thoughts on this.

In the meantime, I thought I’d open it up for some discussion.

Did you watch? What’d you think?

Memorable moments?

Were you as impressed as I was in President Obama’s depth of understanding of health care policy?

Did anyone get the slightest inkling that Republicans would be willing to compromise on literally anything?

Did the event change the dynamic in such a way to make reform more or less likely?

How will the media cover this (other than to obsess over the president’s exchange with John McCain)? Notice anything interesting in the media’s coverage thus far?

The floor is yours.
