ObamaCare; Pelosi, 'No' to Afghanistan; 9/11 Eight Years on

A truly substantive discussion of Swiss and Massachusetts' models for healthcare, and personal and political reactions to the Obama speech to the Joint Session of Congress this week are top of the list. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she will not support any increase in troops to go to Afghanistan. What’s a President on the verge of a quagmire to do? Plus, on the eighth anniversary of 9/11, is the country any safer? Is terrorism on the wane, or did we blow all the global goodwill and sympathy with our follow-up actions around the world?
