Carville: Yes, health reform might be Obama's Waterloo 

Remember when Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., was pilloried by liberals for saying that health care could be President Obama's Waterloo?

As it turns out, Democratic consultant James Carville has come to the same point of view:

If the bill loses, it will prove Senator DeMint right. It will, I think, by and large be a lot of the president's Waterloo....If it goes down it’s gonna be a simple statement: the Democrats can’t govern. They came in with a majority promising health care and they came away with nothing. How can you trust them to do anything else?

Carville also said he was not confident that Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has the votes to ram ObamaCare through the House.
