The question is what will be deemed "failure" WRT healthcare. I think the odds are against them passing anything major for healthcare, bailouts, immigration, or crap and trade, at least until 2011. In fact, I believe crap and trade will not even pass in the senate next year.
I don't care if they actually pass anything, but I do care that they bring it up, so McCain can be forced into a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation right before the Arizona GOP primary.
“In fact, I believe crap and trade will not even pass in the senate next year. “
I agree, and not just because of the exposure of international “warmer” fraud. Moderate Dems can hide for several years with Obamacare, but not with crap n trade. The negative effects will be quick, and many will lose their jobs.
Energy rates will skyrocket too.
