Analyst: Hard for expectations for Obamacare to get lower

(CNN) – The clock is literally ticking down on the White House website, because it is kind of, sort of, the last day to sign up for the Affordable Care Act.

But just hours before the midnight enrollment deadline, the glitches were back on HealthCare.gov. The White House said record traffic was to blame, saying there were 1.2 million visits before noon, peaking at 125,000 users at one point.

While the website seems to be back online now, some users are still being told that it "has a lot of visitors right now," and are being asked to get in line with an e-mail address.

This afternoon's tech issues came after the site had already been unavailable Monday morning due to maintenance.

Those that were locked out will get another extension of a few more days, according to the administration.

But the question is, when the clock strikes midnight, will it be a win, or a fumble for the administration?

CNN political analyst and Politico reporter Maggie Haberman, and CNN political commentator and New Yorker correspondent Ryan Lizza discuss.
