Mark Halperin Explains the "Silver Lining" for Obama to a Possible Democrat Loss in MA Senate Race - Video 1/17/10
Here is video of Mark Halperin today on Meet the Press explaining the "silver lining" to a possible loss by Democrats of the Massachusetts Senate Race on Tuesday.
Halperin said the significance of this race "cannot be overstated," and that the White House feels it "may be slipping away." He says the "silver lining" is that Obama can then go to the House of Representatives and tell them they must pass the Senate Health Care Bill. That way, they would not have to re-vote in the Senate. Halperin said the White House actually prefers the Senate Bill anyway.
