Can the Democrats Get the Votes to Pass Health Care Reform?

Appearing on ABC's This Week yesterday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she was confident she would be able to get the votes necessary to pass health care reform in the House. Recent media coverage, like this article in Politico, have cast doubt on whether she will succeed. But Jonathan Cohn, writing in The New Republic, argues that these accounts may be too skeptical. In an interesting piece in today's New York Times, John Harwood suggests that, ironically, Republican intransigence may lead House Democrats to unite behind the leadership and pass the bill.
