President Obama flew to Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s neck of the woods Monday to rally support for his health care reform package. Kucinich, who has said he would oppose the bill, flew with the president. House Majority Whip James Clyburn said Sunday that Obama didn’t yet have enough votes in his chamber.

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio — President Barack Obama is trying to put the political fight of his presidency in personal terms—the story of an uninsured woman battling cancer.
Obama on Monday brought his closing campaign for a massive health care bill to northeast Ohio, specifically because of Natoma Canfield.
Northeast Ohio is home to two Democrats who voted against the bill last November, Dennis Kucinich and John Boccieri, and one who voted for the bill but is undecided, Betty Sutton. Kucinich accompanied Obama on Air Force One.
