How Co-optation Happens

Do you want to know how co-optation occurs? Read Thomas Daschle being interviewed:

It has been reported that you’re a paid adviser to the insurance
giant UnitedHealth Group, which opposes your belief that health care reform
needs to have a public option. Why do you work with them?

On the left there are those who say that you should never talk to people
who differ with you on a high-profile issue. My question to the left would be,
whom would they advise these insurance companies talk to? Rush Limbaugh and
Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin? That’s the alternative. They can talk to Glenn Beck
and Sarah Palin, or they can talk to me.
