His suggestion is that the country is going to be a real mess over the next couple of years and he can attempt to cast the blame on a Republican Congress when he runs for re-election in 2012.
It is an interesting thought. I believe Obama really is narcissistic enough to be willing to sacrifice the jobs of Congressional Democrats if it saves himself. There are times it appear he is willing to sacrifice the country to pass issues he think will give him a legacy, how is it a leap to think he would not throw Congressional Dems under the bus?
What do you think? Is there a self-serving interest between Obama's request that Dems vote for health care even if it costs them their jobs?
