You are complicit in this health care vote. You had a chance to kill it. Instead, you cut a sleazy backroom deal that gave America the Cornhusker Kickback, a moniker that will go down in American political history right alongside Watergate and the Teapot Dome Scandal. Stick a fork in your political career, it's done.
Tom White, your decision to support the initial House version of the health care legislation (including the "public option") and the Senate version dooms your infant candidacy. You would be well advised to refocus on your career as a plaintiff's trial lawyer and revisit your candidacy in 2012. Keep running and you make Jim Esch look like a quality candidate.
