(Studio: Anderson Cooper) President Obama's compromise on his contraception plan for employers' health care coverage introduced. [OBAMA - says women will still have access to contraceptive services, but insurance companies, not a religion charity/hospital, will make the offer.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's James Carville and Republican strategist Ralph Reed about Obama's policies. [REED - says the political damage to Obama will be incalculable because it is a government edict; calls it government overreach; cites the importance of the Catholic vote.] [CARVILLE - defends the Obama position: people like the idea of having contraception and states have already mandated it.]

Cooper, Anderson
