There is obviously more to the healthcare reform bill, which looks very likely to become law next week. There are a lot of minor issues, and a few major ones, that will need to be addressed going forward.
This is not about those things right now. Right now, this is about winning. A victory tomorrow is as crucial for the Democrats as March Madness is for the teams who are competing to advance to the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA basketball tournament.
