Health Care Lawsuit Could Hurt Romney

The upcoming U.S. Supreme Court battle over the individual mandate in the new health care law -- which was modeled on a Massachusetts law backed by Mitt Romney -- could derail the likely 2012 presidential candidate's campaign if it stays in the headlines, the Boston Herald reports.

Said Larry Sabato: "The longer this goes on and the more it's in the headlines, the worse for Romney. When will it get to the Supreme Court? At least a year. That puts it right in the middle of the presidential political season -- which would be a nightmare for Romney."
