By challenging the Republicans to a public-read, dog-and-pony show-debate on health care, Obama is placing a pretty safe bet.
He has two things going for him: 1) Promising someone something important and expensive like health care is more popular than not promising them something important and expensive like health care. And, 2) Republicans are often a bunch of bumbling idiots, unable to make a coherent case for a free market solution.
So, the best we can hope for?: Socialism Lite.
