Our nation is undergoing a trial by fire of its most strongly held precepts; we are now experiencing our greatest ordeal since the Civil War. We won an important victory yesterday. The health care smash-up created a crack in the veneer of legitimacy of the Republican party. It’s our task now to expand that crack until it’s as wide as the Grand Canyon and the GOP falls in.'
