"A great debate has begun as to how Barack Obama should respond to last week's election results in Massachusetts, which was clearly a protest vote against him, congressional Democrats and their signature policy proposal: the health-care bill."
-- Fareed Zakaria, Washington Post --
"It was not a referendum on Barack Obama, who in every poll remains one of the most popular politicians in America. It was not a rejection of universal health care, which Massachusetts mandated ... in 2006."
-- Frank Rich, New York Times --
Ah, pundits. Ya gotta love 'em.
