"I think there's a pretty good chance that the Supreme Court will strike down the mandate."

The issue will represent a major focus in the 2012 election campaign, he said, adding: “I don't believe that this debate is going away. I don't represent the hide-under-your-desk wing of the Democratic Party. I think we've got to go forward into this."
