Obama summons waffling House Democrats to push for health care reform

Good. This is the kind of thing we’ve been arguing for over the past year, on health care reform, but also on gay rights and other top presidential priorities. Engage, lobbying, knock some heads together – don’t just give a speech, then sit back and hope someone on the Hill follows through. This is what real President’s do. And it’s good to see Obama doing it. And, according to the story, Obama is meeting with House liberals and conservatives. Which is also a change from past White House practices of wracking liberal heads, but not pushing conservatives just as much. This is good all around. Let’s see more of it on all of the President’s promises.
