Fate of Obama's Presidency on the Line

President Obama told members of Congress last week that "the fate of his presidency" hinged on this week's health reform vote in the House, Politico reports.

Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY): "We went in there already knowing his presidency would be weakened if this thing went down, but the president clearly reinforced the impression the presidency would be damaged by a loss... He was subtle, but that was the underlying theme of the meeting -- the importance of passing this for the health of the presidency."

As the article notes, "it's a little more drama than Democrats are used to getting from Obama."
