Healthcare Reform 2.0: Obama Prepares to Re-charge the Debate

Hosted by

Barack Obama is attempting to regain control of the debate on healthcare reform. His proposals drew criticism from conservatives at a series of town hall meetings in August, and Republican senators, once considered potential partners in bi-partisanship, have openly attacked the plan. Guest host Sara Terry considers the prospects for reform, the President's strategy in his speech to Congress next week, and whose support he'll need to win Also, Iran's parliament approves President Ahmadinejad's cabinet, and nearly fifty years after Ted Kennedy started keeping diaries, he finished a memoir of his life. True Compass is a look at the senator through his own eyes.
