Fresh off the news that Sen. Snowe says she won’t accept any compromise public option, specifically not a so-called ‘opt-out’ approach, there are new reports that the White House and Senate Democrats are now leaning toward including one in the senate bill, apparently a public option of the Schumer variety.

There have been a number of hints and signs over the last week or so that the momentum is back on the side of the public option. But if they’ve made that judgment — and some critical decisions about legislative tactics would have go with it — that would be a big turning point.

We’ve got our team in DC hunting for more details.
