This is something he should surely campaign on:

More than 80 percent of Bay Staters who were uninsured before the law took effect now have insurance, and while the deadline to obtain insurance (or risk a fine) is technically tomorrow, it's effectively the end of the year, so that number will probably rise higher (and, keep in mind, this is before the penalty even kicks in, which could prod even more people to comply).

Will he have to wait till the spring to do so? I can barely believe it, but watching Giuliani makes me more sympathetic to a Romney candidacy. Or a McCain candidacy. Or a Thompson candidacy.
