Obama healthcare meeting aims to rally senators

New York Times, December 16, 2009

President Obama declared himself "cautiously optimistic" after a meeting with the entire Senate Democratic caucus, where he urged senators to put aside their differences and "seize the moment" to pass a measure that would extend health coverage to 30 million uninsured Americans, the New York Times reports. President Obama is confronting an increasingly sharp divide on the Democratic left, with liberals in the Senate and the House split on critical issues, the Times reports.
