Voting for Health Care Reform Was Very Bad for Democrats’ Electoral Health - FDL
In the future, the health care debate will become a fascinating case study in groupthink. An interesting look at how Republicans were able to get their base so incredibly angry at what was fundamentally a revised version of an old Republican health care plan, and how almost the entire professional Democratic political class was able to delude itself about the politics of the bill.

Emotion trumps logic. Again. It's why I have "patience" tatooed on my body. Cue Obama supporters to latch onto that one in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... :eyes:

Cheers.
