Despite all the posturing on both sides of this issue, there was never an instance where I felt like healthcare reform was not going to pass. The House took an historic step tonight, and President Obama's handling of this battle will be seen by historians as bold, on point every step of the way, and ultimate the defining moment of his first term. He will be reelected by a landslide in 2012 despite likely GOP gains this year.
And as one pundit put it tonight, the passing of healthcare reform was the best thing that could have happened to right wing talk radio. Now they'll really have something to talk about.
Watch them spin this one.
