Theresa BrownGold stood in front of the court holding a large oil-on-linen painting of a dazed-looking Speaker John Boehner and signs calling for expanded

The 57-year-old artist from Bucks County, Pa., said she has been showing up in front of the Capitol and the Supreme Court since January and plans to do so until it rules on the health-care overhaul.

Ms. BrownGold, a supporter of the overhaul, interviews people about their experience with the health-care system and then paints them, often in a light that reflects their experience with the system. Pulling out a stack of prints of her work, she showed a picture of a woman she said was uninsured and had died during pregnancy. The painting was dark, with the woman’s face fading into grays and reds.

“I bring the portraits as a way to start conversations with people,” she said.

Ms. BrownGold said she likes the mandate that individuals buy insurance. “It does create a large risk pool and spreads the risk,” she said.

And she said she hopes members of Congress will start talking to her after seeing her mentioned in news reports.  “They don’t know if I’m crazy yet,” she said. “I’m really looking forward to the day that they’ll feel safe enough with me that they’ll invite me into their conversations.”

7:57 AM PT: MD-06, MD-04: Looks like I wasn't the only person unhappy with Rep. Donna Edwards' endorsement of financier John Delaney in the 6th District Democratic primary: The state's AFL-CIO just sent around a memo to other labor organizations sharply criticizing Edwards' move, saying she'd been asked to either endorse state Sen. Rob Garagiola or to stay out of the race. Unions have good caused to be miffed: When former prosecutor Glenn Ivey moved to challenge Edwards in her own 4th CD primary, labor circled the wagons around her and made it clear exactly how tough a race Ivey would have?something that helped convince Ivey to drop his aspirations after just a short while. Next time, Edwards may not be so fortunate, since the AFL is saying that her endorsement decision will "certainly be considered in our future relationships."

What's at Stake at the Supreme Court
(from: Political Wire @ March 26, 2012, 10:31 AM)

"In taking up President Barack Obama's health overhaul Monday, the Supreme Court wades into an issue that not only could sway this fall's elections but also could help define for generations what Congress is and isn't entitled to do," the Wall Street Journal reports.

First Read: "So, that's all, just the fate of the president's re-election and the limits on Congressional power, but beyond that, nothing major. "

A ruling from the court is expected in late June.

Romney's Invisible Campaign Manager
(from: Political Wire @ March 26, 2012, 10:04 AM)

Mitt Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades hasn't given a single on-the-record interview this entire cycle, and never goes on television, BuzzFeed reports.

"This determined obscurity is part of the myth of Matt Rhoades, the behind-the-scenes operative successfully steering the Romney campaign down a narrow path to the nomination... Indeed, like a hipster for the blue-blazer-and-loafers set, Rhoades's political persona is deeply invested in giving the impression that he doesn't care what you think of him."

Rubio Positioning Himself for Veep
(from: Political Wire @ March 26, 2012, 09:57 AM)

"For a guy who keeps insisting he has no interest in being vice president, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio appears to be feverishly positioning himself for the job," the Tampa Bay Times reports.

He's asked the Florida Ethics Commission to "close out a complaint" that he misused campaign money, his PAC spent more than $40,000 for investigators to research for negative attacks that could surface against him, and he announced he is rushing publication of his memoir to this summer which "will help him frame his story before a presumably less-flattering unauthorized biography is released in July and will ensure him waves of publicity before the Republican National Convention in Tampa in August."

Santorum Curses at Reporter
(from: Political Wire @ March 26, 2012, 09:52 AM)

Santorum defended himself on Fox News this morning: "If you haven't cursed out a New York Times reporter during the course of a campaign, you're not a real Republican."
