That's one option discussed by Democrats yesterday when trying to outline the long-ball voting plan for the health care bill. A deadline of Christmas is key so Obama has something to talk about during his State of the Union address in late January or early February (wouldn't want to stop the continual campaign schedule!)

With the CBO's analysis of the revised bill slated to come out as early as today, Reid would be on track for a vote right before a holiday that 94% of Americans celebrate in some form.
