The ever optimistic liberal health care journalist Jonathan Cohn explains how a limited breather from working on the issue could potentially help Democrats pass the legislation:
Use the coming days, or maybe weeks, to improve the Democrats’ political standing by focusing on jobs and banking regulation; allow congressional members time to digest the political shock of Massachusetts and figure out that their best political interest lies in passing a blll; give Congressional negotiators the time and space to work out a new House-Senate compromise.
I’ve heard this argument a number of times and I’m not really sure how this would work in practice. Even assuming that Democrats, within weeks, magically repair their political standing by addressing other issues, why would they then want to return to the issue that caused them to lose political standing in the first place?

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
