An hour ago, I sat here in a celebratory mood and began writing a post. And the power went out. And at my house, that meant no intertubes. So while the mood has passed a bit, I will say it was just swell watching the votes count up to 218 in the House. In fact, they got to 220. And HR 3962, the Health Care reform bill passed out of the House. So just good for them. I’m proud to be a Democrat tonight. Now on to the Senate, where we can only hope that Joe Lieberman doesn’t screw things up.
UPDATE: In my rush to publish this post, I neglected to mention the very best moment. When the count hit 218, the chamber just erupted in cheers, and hoots, and clapping and it was just wonderful.
