Three situations worth watching: • Monday’s ruling by a Virginia judge that a key provision of the Obama health care plan is unconstitutional will touch off a legal battle that will probably go all the way to the Supreme Court. Judge Henry Hudson said the constitution prohibits the government from forcing people to buy health insurance, just as it prohibits mandating that people buy certain cars, houses or rugs. Hudson is a Republican, and whether his ruling stands or is reversed, we will probably hear the same shrieks from the far left that came following the Supreme Court’s decision in the Bush-Gore race.
