U.S. President Barack Obama (L) makes remarks on his meeting with Democratic senators about health care legislation as Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-NV) listens in the Roosevelt Room at the White House in Washington in this December 15, 2009 file photo. Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele on January 10, 2010 called on Reid to step down as Senate majority leader over racial comments about President Obama, while Democrats tried to put the issue behind them. Reid apologized to the president on Saturday over remarks published in a new book calling Obama a "light-skinned" black man "with no Negro dialect unless he wanted to have one."
