    Instead of the primetime speaking slot the White House wanted, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden lauded the accomplishment in a less formal Rose Garden address that was alternately celebratory and hard-edged.

    “In the end, history is not kind to those who would deny Americans their basic economic security. Nobody remembers well those who stand in the way of America’s progress or our people,” Obama said.

    Hard to say if this is a judgment on the healthcare law (not likely) versus simply being a bottom-line decision -- president taking up valuable commercial air time for the sake of touting a political agenda.
