Obama 'All Fired Up' Again, but Is It Too Little, Too Late?

Hosted by

President Obama is barnstorming for healthcare reform to be passed by Democrats only. But members of his own party still need convincing. Public opinion polls are not encouraging, and Republicans say, come November, any bill Democrats vote for "will be the issue in every race in America." We look at the "fixes" House Democrats are demanding in the bill passed by the Senate. Has the President waited too long to assume a dominant role?  Will compromise be a historic achievement or a political trap for his party?
