I don't know if we won tonight or not.

Women clearly lost. I don't know if there's anything even close to a public option in what squeaked through(or if anything other than the public option actually means anything).

Did the bill have to get watered-down to next to nothing? Is there any reason to think it won't just get worse in the Senate?

And, in the end, do partial victories really end up being worth anything at all?

It's nice that something CALLED a health care bill passed. But was this anything other than symbolism?

I'm willing to be persuaded, but the icky feeling is there in the pit of my stomach.

And we can all agree that it's a good thing THIS Congress wasn't the one debating the Civil Rights Act of 1964, if this is what it would've been reduced to.
