Political Quakes

The past week saw some significant news on several hot political issues. ObamaReidPelosicare may not be a done deal as Deroy Murdock at NRO summarizes how last week the health care monstrosity was rejected by Missouri voters, open to question by a U.S. District Judge's hearing a Virginia constitutional challenge (as other states are also going to court to challenge the health policy) and maneuvering continues in Congress during the run-up to the midterm elections.

Meanwhile the ruling by a federal judge striking down California's Proposition 8 popular referendum on marriage (far from settled as appeals will continue) and the confirmation of Elana Kagan to the Supreme Court only re-emphasized the role of the courts as a political issue.
