Obama Says he Will Not Campaign For Anyone Who Does Not Support HealthCare Reform

There is nothing wrong with Obama saying that he will not campaign for anyone who does not support his HealthCare Reform. No Congressman or Senator has an inherent right to the presidents support, nor face time. It does show that he may be getting a bit desperate and is seriously upping the pressure. Then again, Obama's presence has not helped in the last few elections (domestically and abroad), so it may not be as big of a threat as he intends.


"The president will refuse to make fund-raising visits during November elections to any district whose representative has not backed the bill.

A one-night presidential appearance can bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars in funds which would otherwise take months to accumulate through cold-calling by campaign volunteers.

Mr Obama's threat came as the year-long debate over his signature domestic policy entered its final week.

Mr Obama is personally telephoning congressmen who are still on the fence this week, in between several personal appearances devoted toward swinging public opinion.
