I returned from Giverny to discover that Obama had scored a huge political victory with the Supreme Court's upholding of the Affordable Care Act.  The decision was, in several ways, rather odd, and I will leave it to those far more knowledgeable than I to parse it and explicate it.  But the political significance is, I think, unambiguous and of major importance.  I actually believe that ths decision will very materially aid Obama in his quest for a second term.  We shall see.  For the time being, it is enough to savor the relief and the pleasure.

Little succeeds in the U. S. like success, especially among the ideologically non-aligned. Romney has a daunting enough task of arguing against Obama's twin successes of eliminating bin Laden, and passing the health-insurance plan, without the latter being his own spawn from his days as the Premier of the Socialist Republic of Massachusetts.
