The upside to winning is that it's contagious. People like a winner. And as Obama aggressively sells his new health care law, public support will grow. Come back in six months, and we'll see some dramatic changes in the poll numbers.
It's evident to all that political fortunes rise and fall with the winds in America, so it's far too early for predictions about the November elections. But I the Democrats are in a much stronger position than many realize. If the economy shows improvement, if Obama can sell the benefits of his signature legislation, and if the Republicans continue to pursue its nihilist absolutism, then...well stay tuned, kids. This football game is gettin' fun.
