Obama supporters will try to recapture the energy of his presidential campaign with a two-week health care reform push featuring a bus tour, rallies, and more than 2,000 house parties. Organizing for America, the network of Obama supporters now run by the Democratic National Committee, aims to show lawmakers that the raucous town halls of previous weeks don't represent the majority of Americans who, want to see health care expanded.
One recent rally even featured the sunrise logo and placards from Obama's campaign. "There were a lot of successful town halls and meetings over the recess, but the ones that got the most attention were those where angry people got up and yelled," the head of one health care reform group told the Washington Post. "But the majority of the public stands behind the need for reform, and they need to get it done now."
