President Obama is at his best when he's campaigning. If the Supreme Court strikes this law down, there's no reason we can't have another election year obsessed with healthcare reform.

I would love to see lawmakers fearful of losing re-election if they don't cough up something real. Preferably before the election to vouchsafe their success.

Now, that may sound like a pipe dream but the House and Senate sure as shit got The Fear in them over that ethics overhaul.
