Still stuck on Stupak

Was the Stupak amendment
1. A pro-life trick to stop health care reform?
2. A Democratic trick to get health care reform through the House?
3. A tar pit for anyone trying to comment on it?
Ezra Klein tries talking about it, and draws fire from Troglopundit and the Other McCain, among others.
I think the amendment will remain trouble for Democrats. It can't be easily discarded without making failure of a conference report more likely.
How many legislators who voted for it will say, "Nah, I didn't really mean it," later in the year? Because no one will forget that kind of flip-flop.
Stupak is going to stick and continue to gum up the works.
