Coburn: I think we got rid of some excess energy and created some judgment. I think in retrospect, it was very good for us to go through that. One, it markedly raised awareness on Obamacare. It markedly did; you’ve got to give [Texas Sen.] Ted Cruz credit. They raised the temperature, there’s no question. No. 2 is, it taught judgment, and it’s going to force more unity — and that’s what people want to see.
