has the run-down
. It makes for a cautionary (from the Dems’ point of view) and cheering (from ours) tale.

“If these six votes had gone the other way, Obama would have been defeated”
This is absolutely false. It was sufficiently publicized that just before the final vote a number of Democrats approached Pelosi, telling her that if she needed more votes that they were ready to change their planned no to a yes for Obamacare. I am certain that Barone knew this at the time. Maybe he has put it out of his mind because he doesn’t want to feel bad knowing how many more Democrats would have been politically slain had they voted according to their true beliefs.
