(Studio: Anderson Cooper) The possible defeat of President Obama's health care reform bill introduced.

(White House: Ed Henry) The Democrats' consideration of the use of "deeming" to pass the Senate bill without an actual vote examined. [In Pennsylvania, Missouri, Ohio, OBAMA - calls for a final up or down vote.] [In response to reporter's question, White House press secretary Robert GIBBS†- says there will be a vote.] [March 15, voice of Speaker of the House Nancy PELOSI; Senator John CORNYN - talk about the process.] The questions of the politics behind the bill & the vote process & the likelihood that the bill will be passed discussed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's David Gergen about this deeming/reconciliation option. [GERGEN - says this move would taint the health care bill & will give it an air of illegitimacy: that process does matter; recalls the president has been arguing for a clean up or down vote; wonders if the vote is in doubt.]

Cooper, Anderson;
Henry, Ed
