Prime Minister Obama

Obligatory health care summit take: Leaving aside the content of the actual exchanges, which everyone else is already covering, my only observation is that the summit showed the White House does not know the difference between a President and a Prime Minister.

He is the Chief Executive, not a legislator, and he had no business being in that meeting. He should have summoned them to Blair House, given them a pep talk (with of course ample behind-the-scenes prep w/ his party leaders), and then locked them in to do their work. Agree completely with Yuval Levin. Reaction round-up here.
