I’ve done an analysis of Saturday’s roll call votes, and I’ve found that there were 42 members of the House who voted both in favor of the Stupak amendment to bar taxpayer funding for abortions and in favor of the main bill. The reason why I’ve focused on these members is that clearly, Speaker Nancy Pelosi couldn’t have won passage of health care legislation had the House not adopted pro-life language. The names below are all of those who voted in favor of both measures, with an asterik next to those who were considered undecided on the morning of the vote. To be clear, many of these members would have supported the health care bill no matter what. However, given the 220-215 vote margin on Saturday night’s vote, what it means is that if the pro-life language is stripped from the bill during negotiations with the Senate, if Pelosi loses the support of any three of these people below as a result — without picking up anybody else’s support — the bill cannot pass the House.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
