The Ed Show's Ed Schultz let it all out Wednesday evening and expressed the frustration that many progressives feel about attempts by Democrats to water down the Senate health care bill.

Citing efforts by Sens. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.), and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) to block or dillute measures in the health care bill, a fired-up Schultz explained to Sen. Barabara Boxer (D-Calif.) that Democrats have disappointed. Progressives, he explained, thought that by electing a Democratic president, a Democratic Senate, and a Democratic House, reform would be possible.

Sen. Boxer, exasperated by Schultz's comments, tried to calm down the MSNBC host and urged people not to give up on Senate Democrats.
