You Can Thank Sen Al Franken For The Passage of HCR
It was Sen Al Franken who got up in the administration's grill after what's his name won up in MA and had sharp words for the WH about their lack of leadership.

Al spoke, the WH listened, Obama got his game on and the rest is history.

2. Al should also get credit for Obama's new poll numbers. LEADERSHIP is what
HCR required all along.

Obama should have gotten tough way back in the summer of last year when the WH let the Rethugs beat HCR down.

4. Nope
They needed it to drag out until this year, closer to the election. It's political theater designed to embarrass the Republicans and make the Dems look like heroes. That's why Obama hung back.

I know people don't like to hear this, but he's a master political strategist.

3. Sen Franken is doing a fantastic job of living up to his idol, Sen Wellstone.
