    WASHINGTON -- Gov.-elect Nikki Haley challenged President Obama over his landmark health insurance law Thursday in a candid, personal exchange in front of Cabinet members and newly elected governors from across the country but away from reporters.

    In an exchange recounted by Haley and confirmed by White House aides, Obama rejected Haley's request to repeal the health care bill - but said he'd consider letting states opt out of its mandates if they ran exchange programs, banned insurance firms from denying coverage of pre-existing conditions and enabled people to pool together for better rates.

    With only four Democratic incoming governors joining 18 Republicans and one independent, Obama acknowledged the Nov. 2 elections hadn't gone as he'd hoped.

    Yeah, Barry, elections didn't go as you'd hoped. In fact, change was the operative word for them. How ironic, huh? Elections really do have consequences, even more so when you're on the losing end.

    A few more Republicans in the Senate, 63 more in the House...more governors...600+ more in state legislatures. Gosh, lots of Nikkis when you come to think of it. And, even some folks in your own party are acting like Nikki too. But don't sweat it. Remember...you are a hardened, professional community organizer at heart and as such you're used to having people pissed off at you. And look on the bright side. You'll have lots and lots of stuff for your next book about yourself.
