Democrats should surprise Republicans and the media today by:
Find 219 votes. 1 extra just in case it's unpopular so no one member was "the" deciding vote.
Then tonight in the big speech,
tout all of the immediate benefits line by line.
Recognize the election of Scott Brown and ensure the American people the President has "heard their message" and schedule a hearing on Cspan to "fix" the new law.
Promise to take out any special deal for any particular states.
In addition, Democrats and Republicans should come together to improve the new law.
