    President Obama is literally taking the political advantage on taxes Republicans have enjoyed since Reagan from the GOP before everyone's eyes.

    I really think this is a stunning political development in the grand scheme, and in tandem with the mega-shift of women to the Democratic Party represents a true pillar of a multi-generational political realignment.

    If Kennedy flips from oral arguments and votes to uphold ACA, the president will enter the general having 1) set the stage for reformed health care, 2) withdrawn from Iraq and killed bin Laden, 3) prevented an American depression, 4) upheld the party's reputation as a defender of women's rights and 5) made the Democratic Party the defender of tax reform for the middle class in the eyes of the public.

    Rmoney's gonna get his ass handed to him on a silver Buick.
