Last month, when President toured a Boeing aircraft plant in North Charleston, South Carolina, he saw a familiar face in the crowd that greeted him: Patrick Caddell, a former Democratic political operative and pollster who, for forty-five years, has been prodding insurgent Presidential candidates to attack the Washington establishment. Caddell, who lives in Charleston, is perhaps best known for helping Jimmy Carter win the 1976 Presidential race. He is also remembered for having collaborated with his friend Warren Beatty on the 1998 satire "Bulworth."

I think Trump just wants a healthcare bill to arrives at his desk that he can sign and call a victory. He has never spoken with any significant opposition to some form of universal care. As a matter of fact, at times he's said quite the opposite.


Trump's position on healthcare has little to do with ideology, and more to do with "it's not Obamacare". I actually think it's possible that if Conyers HR676 got to Trump's desk, he'd probably sign it.

I also think there may be something to the idea that the 2011 Correspondents Dinner was the day Trump decided he'd get Obama. Trump really is that big an egomaniac. And he was severely insulted.
