Obama: I was for the public option before I wasnt

Back in July, Obama said the bill he signs must have the public option.

[A]ny plan I sign must include an insurance exchange: a one-stop shopping marketplace where you can compare the benefits, cost and track records of a variety of plans - including a public option to increase competition and keep insurance companies honest - and choose what's best for your family.
How quickly he caves. From a town hall over the weekend:

"[T]he public option, whether we have it or we don't have it, is not the entirety of health care reform. This is just one sliver of it, one aspect of it."
Add one more to the very long list of major disappointments.
