“Campaigns and candidates matter,” says a White House unnamed flunky to CNN’s White House reporter. The polls are about to close, but the Democrats are spinning fast and furiously to shift the blame away from Obama, the Democrats’ agenda, and the rest of the Democratic leadership. They are scheming, we are told, to save ObamaCare if Scott Brown does in fact win. Dana Bash tells us that the Democrats are saying it is “unlikely” that the House will swallow the Senate bill. According to her, Rep. Bart Stupak says that option is a complete non-starter. It seems a Martha Coakley win is not anticipated.
At some point, will the Democrats stop scrambling to save the bill that’s dragging them all under and start listening? Stay tuned.
