These days when anyone talks about TARP, the government program infusing gobs of taxpayer cash into the financial sector to prop up the economy (and which garnered bipartisan support under both Presidents Bush and Obama), it's as one of those political albatrosses so toxic that any politico who supported it appears headed for a fall come November.  As with most things political, however, it appears that the reality and the spin don't really line up.  TPM has a look at the program, and as it turns out, it may well have succeeded beyond anyone's expectations.
