Betcha He's Re-Thinking Obamacare,...

NB: I'm not making fun at the disease, just the irony of those involved,.....

Sen. Christopher Dodd said Friday he has been diagnosed with an early stage of prostate cancer and will have surgery in August during the Senate recess.

The Connecticut Democrat, 65, says he feels fine and is "confident we're going to come out of this well." He says he was diagnosed about six weeks ago, but the diagnosis will not affect his plans to seek a sixth term next year.

"I'm running for re-election," he told reporters at his Hartford office. "I'll be a little leaner, a little meaner, but I'm running."

Dodd is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee and is playing a lead role in Congress' overhaul of the nation's health care system. He took that role while his close friend, Senate health committee Chairman Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts fights his own battle with brain cancer.

He's one of the elite that has a privileged health care plan, not like the rest of us peasants.
