(CNN) – The enrollment surge for the Affordable Care Act is more than just a numbers game, it could be President Barack Obama's legacy on the line.
Even Vice President Joe Biden didn't seem to think the administration was going to hit its target of 7 million back in February.
"We may not get to seven, we may get to five or six, and that's a hell of a start," Biden said.
But after a surge on the last day of open enrollment, Obamacare met the original White House target, President Barack Obama said Tuesday at what amounts to a victory for his administration.
So is this a game changer for the White House? And will the new numbers help vulnerable Democrats running for re-election in 2014? CNN chief political analyst Gloria Borger, CNN political commentator and Republican strategist Kevin Madden, and former Ohio Democratic Governor Ted Strickland discuss.
