MSNBC paired Howard Dean with Mary Landrieu on a health care segment
last night on Hardball
, which had the curious effect of forcing Landrieu -- a red state Dem who's been a hard sell on reform -- to be a staunch advocate of the Senate bill, which Dean wants to see killed for being insufficiently progressive. It made for a very interesting dynamic and compelling TV
as a sitting Democratic senator and the previous chair of the DNC hashed it out.
