A group of health care professionals watched President Obama's speech yesterday at the White House; cable television networks also tuned in.
But neither the live crowd nor the television viewers appeared to be his primary audience. Instead, Obama seemed to speaking to wavering House Democrats -- particularly the more conservative Democrats -- who hold the keys to the "up-or-down" health care vote that the president demanded.
It won't be easy. For example, Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., told ABC's Good Morning America, he will oppose the president unless anti-abortion language is included in a final bill.

One of the arguments Obama presented in order to convince "wavering" Dems that they should pass his health care abomination bill is that "government can work." Notice he didn't say that it does, only that it "can." Sounds like even he admits it hasn't yet.
Dems are not "wavering." They are scared spitiless and won't fall on their swords for Obama.
