What they got out of this is a lot of publicity making it unmistakable which party opposes Obamacare and, in contrast, which party is willing to at least threaten default to protect it. Memories over the shutdown will almost certainly fade, but if Obamacare's implementation really turns out to be bad news, the memory of which party is guilty will be indelible.
