No surprise here. Former President Bill Clinton has weighed in on the healthcare reform legislation, and he's in the take-what-you-can-get camp:

Our only responsible choice is the path of action. Does this bill read exactly how I would write it? No. Does it contain everything everyone wants? Of course not. But America can't afford to let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

Full statement over at TPM.
