The sign on the podium says "AFL-CIO Civil, Human and Women's Rights Conference." and the speaker is Barack Obama.

Here's what he said: "I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer universal health care program. I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its gross national product on health care, cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody ... a single-payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. That's what I'd like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we've got to take back the White House, we've got to take back the Senate, and we've got to take back the House."

"We might not get there immediately." Indeed. If anybody is gleeful and ecstatic, why would it not be the president, as he sees this fiasco as just a steppingstone to his dream.
