"All this euphoria going on"

Obama and Biden and lots of happy staffers

There are lots of photos out there of various Democrats celebrating last night's passage of the health care reform bill in the House. Everything that could possibly be said about health care in this country has already been said over and over for the past year. (I mean, 90 years.) I'm not wild about this particular bill because I don't think it goes nearly far enough in ensuring that everyone gets the health care they need, but what can you do. It's a start.

But after all the anger and fighting and accusations, these photos of happy Democrats are sort of cute. John McCain went on Good Morning America today to grouse about the positive feeling in Washington as a result of the bill's passage, and harumphed that he was repulsed by "all this euphoria going on."

Yeah, you tell 'em, McCain. Support the American people's hatred of euphoria.

Here's Nancy Pelosi with Reps. Steny Hoyer, George Miller, James Clyburn and John Larson:

And Pelosi and Clyburn with lots of happy staffers who have all been working for about three months straight:

Do you think Dennis Hastert and Trent Lott were raising their hands in the air and beaming so radiantly when the Iraq War Resolution and Bush's tax cuts were passed?

Good stuff! Honestly, I got left behind on what was/wasn't going to be in this legislation, but if They hate it, I'm pretty sure I can support it. Hopefully, it will all be improved upon in the years ahead, rather than dismantled. Though I am looking forward to watching the GOP try to convince voters it should all be repealed.

Now, if we can just capture bin Laden during Sweeps Week, this might actually be the Best Presidency Ever.
