Video: The Road Ahead for Health Care


President Obama gave an impassioned speech to turn the tide of dissent over health care reform, but was it enough?

According to Steve Chaggaris, CBS News Director of Political Coverage, "It will take a few days to shake out whether Americans were swayed by what he said tonight."

Chaggaris also notes that his decision to keep a public option plan isn't going over well with some moderate Republicans he hopes to court, namely Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine), who expressed her wish that the President took a public option off the table.

Watch Steve Chaggaris' analysis of President Obama's address to a joint session of Congress above.
