America's Reaction to Schiavo Case

CBS News has a poll that shows that a fairly large majority of Americans (66%) oppose re-inserting Terri Schiavo's feeding tube.  It also shows that a similarly-sized majority (61%) would prefer that the Supreme Court not hear the case.  I must admit, I have been a little worried about how Americans are viewing our health care system during this time with so many angry charges and counter-charges on the airwaves.  Thus, I found this poll reassuring because I was concerned that Americans would want to re-write all of the "right-to-die" jurisprudence.  [bm]
