How wonderful if the passing of Ted Kennedy heralds the fall of Obamacare.
President Obama made a last-ditch bid tonight to save Edward Kennedy’s old US Senate seat for the Democrats in a high-stakes by-election that could imperil US healthcare reform. Mr Obama changed his weekend plans to dash to Massachusetts to campaign for Martha Coakley, the Democratic candidate in the vote on Tuesday. The president was repeatedly interrupted by hecklers as he spoke to a crowd at Boston’s Northeastern University.
Here’s hoping that Scott Brown wins – in Massachusetts!
