Andrew provides a good preview of the mentality that we're probably going to see a lot more of following tomorrow's special election:

I suspect serious health insurance reform is over for yet another generation.

Even if Coakley wins - and my guess is she'll lose by a double digit margin - the bill is dead. The most Obama can hope for is a minimalist alternative that simply mandates that insurance companies accept people with pre-existing conditions and are barred from ejecting patients when they feel like it.

That's all he can get now - and even that will be a stretch.
