Former President Clinton is taking to Capitol Hill today to discuss health care reform with Senate Democrats and their independent colleagues. At a Tuesday lunch, Clinton is exptected to push for reform and discuss his own failed attempt at reform during his presidency: From CNN:

"A notice obtained by CNN went out to Senate Democrats saying, "All Senators should be aware that former President Clinton will be making a presentation on Health Care at tomorrow's caucus lunch. Senator Reid has requested that all Democratic Senators attend."

A constant refrain from Democratic leaders is that wavering Democrats must heed what they say is a lesson of the Clinton administration: fail to pass a health care reform bill, and congressional Democrats will suffer on Election Day.

With this visit at a critical time for health care in the Senate, the former president will be able to deliver that message in person."
