This is good news. I'm happy that, for one reason or another, Obama decided that he didn't want to play dirty on the healthcare bill.
BBC News - Obama tells Senate not to 'jam' through healthcare planUS President Barack Obama has warned Democrats not to "jam" healthcare reforms through the Senate after a Republican won a seat in Massachusetts.
Mr Obama told ABC News any vote should wait until Scott Brown had taken up his seat, and lawmakers should seek to "coalesce" around parts they agreed on.
Mr Brown will be Massachusetts' first Republican senator since 1972.
His victory means the Republicans now have enough votes in the Senate to block the Democrats' healthcare plans.
