Obama, Lincoln to meet

Posted By on Tue, Nov 3, 2009 at 7:06 AM

President Obama will meet up with Sen. Blanche Lincoln tonight in the Oval Office at 5:15.  I wonder what they're going to talk about?

Lincoln is perhaps the most embattled Democrat in the Senate, and she's been getting political pressure from both sides as she declines to tip her hand on health care.

She is one of several moderates who have had the president's ear lately - Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN), Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) and Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) also have visited the White House recently. 

All I can say is, good luck, Barry.
