Of course, as with TARP, the leadership can come back with a Christmas-tree bill, treating this vote as an open invitation to sausage-making (to mix metaphors horribly).
But it is a victory for the good guys, so let's treat it as such.
And as Ian Welsh has said (paraphrasing): "The left must defeat Obama, and be seen to." That's clearly what happened here. Yay!
