Obama's stealth victory

The Senate has passed a version of the Obama stimulus bill by a vote of 61 to 37. This should feel like a big victory. It doesn't because it was secured with the votes of just 3 Republicans and Obama had set bipartisanship as a high administration goal. Bob Herbert in the NYT said yesterday that Obama's a genius at politics. Maybe not so much.
