Carol Platt Liebau reports that Obama is losing his cool. I agree. So does the Washington Post, in an article describing Obama's attempt to regain that cool through an intensive public outreach on health care, which will eventually come to represent his biggest political failing (and conservative's biggest political success) if he can't get it through.
Six months into his presidency, Barack Obama may have no greater test of his ability to translate personal popularity into a successful legislative agenda than the upcoming two weeks.

With skepticism about the president's health-care reform effort mounting on Capitol Hill -- even within his own party -- the White House has launched a new phase of its strategy designed to dramatically increase public pressure on Congress: all Obama, all the time.
