Some political analysts believe that if the court strikes down the law, it would make it easier for Obama to cast Republicans in Washington — including conservatives in the Supreme Court — as obstructionists who have worked against the interests of middle- and low-income Americans.

The conventional wisdom is that it would be a political disaster for Democratic President Barack Obama, and a boon for Republicans, if the U.S. Supreme Court strikes down all or most of Obama’s healthcare overhaul.

That could be: The healthcare law – which among other things would require most Americans to buy health insurance – is Obama’s signature achievement in domestic policy, and the number-one target of many Republicans in this year’s elections.

However, that doesn’t necessarily mean a loss before the Supreme Court would cripple Obama’s re-election argument in November.
